Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rick Excellent Product - Lifetime 8x12.5 Storage Shed
Excellent Product - However, requires up front preparation to insure successful installation, i.e. level/square platform preferably constructed of concrete or a solid wooden platform. Requires minimum two people to assemble, but three people actually works better. Instructions are adequate but can be intimidating if not studied in advance of starting the assembly. In general, easy assembly, but realistically will take 4-5 hrs. based on proper initial preparation. The unit comes in two boxes on a wooden pallet which are both very heavy (800 lbs.). It is best not to try and move the boxes, but rather open the boxes at the point of drop off at your residence and then sort the pieces in order of assembly at the assembly point in your yard. However, avoid laying out in the hot sun, pick a shaded area if possible. I would definitely recommend this high quality product

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SeanV Looks better than it is
I have put together a lot of "stuff" over the years including sheds and many other projects. I was very surprised to see the "Made in USA" Stamp on it. This gave me a sense of excitement just expecting great quality. I was severely disappointed.
This unit did not fit together as planned. On top of that, there are a couple incorrect parts labeled in the directions leaving you to figure it out basically. The directions are very vague and have a few sentences of instructions to help you among st a lot of crude drawings. The doors didn't line up, neither did the shelf in the back. Watch yourself. I had great experience with another vinyl shed in the past, but this was a horrible mistake. If i had it to do over again, I would rather of not had a shed at all instead of this one.

Almost perfect in every aspect from packing to the installation of the last item. Everything fit and holes for screws lined up well. The instructions were good but lacked detail in a couple of diagrams. No missing parts and in fact had extra screws. Lifetime sheds may be a bit more expensive but this is truly a case of you get what you pay for. It goes without saying but I will anyway, build a good, solid, level base and this shed will be up and ready to use in about 5 hours max time for 2 people. I would highly recommend any Lifetime shed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lcaphoto Great Shed, Long Lasting, Doors could be more...
I love this shed. We have owned for for 5 years now. The only downfall is the door handles, they are a bit flimsy over time and tend to break easily...losing the spring latch mechanism. When this happens, the doors don't close completely so it causes a slight drip of water. We have ordered new door handles...very easy to communicate with company too! Love this Shed and would and have recommended it to all...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bubba Parts Not Labeled And Instructions skip Around
Parts are not labeled and the instructions sky around. Too many problems with the sky light. Screws will not stay in place wood screws and plastic not a good thing. Otherwise this is a nice shed.

For something made in the USA you would think they would label all of the parts. We had to guess on some parts as they were not labeled at all.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Robo Product was just what I was looking for.
Assembly instuctions poor. Mostly pictures and little writing. Some packages were mislabeled with wrong letters and codes. Very difficult to understand.

We are very happy with the quality of this product.. My wife and I put it together over three days, working about three hours a day. Part tolerances were excellent and fit without difficulty. We added the Extreme Weather Kit because we have high winds and on rare occasions a freak snowstorm. That took additional one-person assembly time.
