From the manufacturer
We've come a long way since our beginning. It all started as an idea in a garage in Riverdale, Utah. Lifetime Products' founder was a father who simply wanted to build a better basketball hoop for his family.
His passion for innovation quickly expanded beyond his initial project, and he created a company in March of 1986 called Lifetime Products. The philosophy for the name, as well as the goal of the company, was to build durable lasting products for consumers.
Lifetime Products has become a world-wide trusted brand as it has broadened from basketball hoops, to picnic tables, and to folding tables and chairs. Now our sheds, kayaks, and more are leaders in their competitive markets. From those first years in Lifetime's history, the company has grown from 15 employees in a partial warehouse to over 1,500 employees — all over the globe.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I built a wood frame with 2x4 studs, filled it with leveling sand, and laid a 9'x13' base with 12" pavers from the local hardware store (just over a dollar each.) Its extremely important to have a suitable base, either concrete, pavers, or at a push a wood frame with plywood sheeting. If you simply set up on grass or dirt it will be almost impossible to assemble correctly and the parts won't line up.
The shed arrived on a flat bed truck in 2 large boxes and the delivery guy was very helpful. When I began to unpack the shed I got the feeling that the panels weren't going to be tough enough for my liking, but I decided to put it up anyway and see how it turned out.
Despite what you may read on other reviews, this is definitely a 2 person job, especially if there is any wind. The side panels click into slots in the floor and take some force to make sure they connect properly, especially the corner pieces.
The instructions are relatively straight forward but I suggest laying all the parts out on the ground and reading through the entire instruction book while identifying the parts before you start.
The side panels lock into the floor at the bottom, click into the adjacent panel, and are also screwed into place. Its very important not to over tighten these screws or the coarse thread will strip the plastic. This annoyed me at first but I later realized that these screws really only hold the panels in position and don't make any difference to the structural integrity of the shed itself.
Once all the panels were up the shed still had a bit of a flimsy feel to it, but once the steel roof trusses went into place it became solid. Much like a car, this thing depends on the roof to keep the frame rigid and strong and I was very impressed with the way it became solid when the roof went on. The doors have nice latch and locking mechanism and serve their purpose. I won't be storing gold bars in there any time soon but its certainly adequate to keep kids out if you plan on storing pool or garden chemicals in there.
The windows and the in roof skylights let plenty of light in and the windows slide up in the frame to open. The shed came with several wall and corner shelves and there are other accessories available for this shed. I bought the window shutters for around $30. They look great and break up the otherwise bland looking sides on the 12.5' shed.
Overall I'm please with this product. Once assembled its sturdy and it looks great. My only complaint is the risk of stripping the plastic when screwing the panels. I wish the manufacturer could set metal threads in the panels and use a fine thread machine type screw, or make the plastic thicker where the screws attach.
If you're torn between buying a wooden shed or taking a chance on this one, keep in mind, no painting, no wood rot, no termites, no splinters. Just remember to start with a flat surface, allow 2 people about 4-6 hours to assemble, and don't over tighten the plastic screws.
Overall a good product and worth the money.
I will note that I signed up for the extra $150 installation service (in SE Michigan). That company came several hours late on the eve of a snowstorm (started near dark). They left all the parts out, which got covered with snow and ice. After a couple follow-ups, they declared they would not come back and I was never charged their fee. When everything thawed out a few weeks (or months?) later, I was able to find all the parts and put it together. Instructions are pretty good, for the most part. There are links to video walk-thrus of the steps, but I never used them.
Since my wife is somewhat frail, I knew I would need to assemble the unit alone with only minor help not involving physical strength. Surprisingly, I had no real problem building the entire unit single handed. However there are a couple of hints I will offer.
1) When attaching the sides to the base, you need to place the supplied board directly under each hole in the base. Then push in one tab at a time. The supplied board will raise the base so that the tab will be the only one under force. Once I got that, the sides go in quickly. You might think it should go between tabs. NO! You can't push two tabs in at once. One at a time. I spent a lot of effort before I realized this.
2) When adding the roof, line up just one hole and get a screw started in that hole, don't tighten it. This holds the roof panel in place as you get the rest of the panel to line up without needing someone to hold it from sliding off. I found that the hole nearest the wall on the open side was the easiest to get lined up.
3) When inserting the skylights, I used vise grips to grab on a to a tab on the underside of the skylight from the inside and pull the screw holes down into the roof panel holes. Then screw them in. The alternative is to have some method to push the skylight down from the outside, i.e. someone on the roof.
4) The only two man operation was installing the header over the door. I needed someone to hold the doors vertical, while I threaded the header onto the door axles.
5) If the base is not perfectly flat, the door will likely not line up. So use the supplied shims to adjust the door as the instructions indicate.
6) When I got to installing the last two roof panels, the roof and back wall would not line up. I had to use a wedge between one of the support columns of the house and the roof panel to push the panel into alignment. It was 2 inches off. I later realized that most likely I could have used the shims to adjust the base to achieve the same end.
Now that its up. It looks fine. I am not worried about rain or snow falling on it, since its under the house so can't comment on those properties.
Over all the instructions are pretty clear. I would say that I wish there was more information about how to differentiate the various screws. The only way is to count how many of a type there are in a bag and compare that to the contents of the bag as stated in the instructions. This works, but sometimes there are more screws than listed so its takes some sorting.
