Heartland DIY 8' x 10' Kwik Shed Storage Building

The Heartland shed I picked up is the one in the middle

The Heartland shed I picked up is the one in the middle

This shed was bought for about 4 reasons;


The price was the main reason for buying
It was on sale at my Lowes
It was delivered for very cheap
It was for storage of my quads

I can fit quads in it easily, and I can pull it out easily too. Came with pretty crappy walls though. The first thing I did was reinforce it with plywood on the inside. I then stained it and it was like brand new.

My unit was damaged a bit but that was because it was so cheap for me to get, so I did not complain to the guy. When its winter I store my quads in the garage, and my mower in this. It works well and with the plywood I can hang stuff on the wall. I have my bushwhacker on the wall.

This thing is relatively huge, its nice and spacey for everything I wanted to put in it. I put some shelves in there and I can store seasonal things in here too.

When I got it it came put together, and there was no problems for them lifting it up, its pretty light, 4 men can lift it easily with no problems. If it wasn't installed it is very easy to take down and put together in about 3 hours by yourself, I did it so I know.

I just paid the man, he delivered it and it was done. very easy, good quality, I like how I can do what ever I want to the shed, because it was pre-used, and it still is in good shape, I found this shed to be very roomy, with plenty of expansion room!

Thanks for reading it

I just bought one someone had returned to Lowes but there are no instructions or equipment lists. Where can I get the information?

Windows are available
by: Anonymous

You can find accessories for these sheds, such as windows (two sizes), skylights, cupola, etc. on the Lowes website. Go to the "Storage Building Accessories" category. They don't make it easy to identify which options go with which sheds, but you can also pick up a paper brochure at Lowes that is more clear.

Alternative to Heartland
by: John

A similar shed to Heartland is the Handy Home brand. These are a very similar specification. Find out more at this page and can be delivered to your door. I think that there is also a building service where they will put it together for you.

Where to Buy Kwik Shed
by: Viv

Where can I buy the Kwik shed?
I want one that is 8' x 10', with window and door on the 10' side.
The one available at my local Lowes has no window, and the door is on the 8' side - not suitable for me.

Where Can I Buy Kwik Shed
by: Anonymous

Does anyone know where I can buy the shed shown here?
I've seen a Kwik at my local Lowes but it's not the same (i.e. 8' x 10' with a window).
I'm looking for one that has the window and door on the 10' side.

Heartland Kwik Shed
by: DY

Thanks for the article. I have seen the Kwik shed at Lowes in Newmarket Ont. and it fits my needs.
I need to get it (the kit) delivered to my cottage in Southern Quebec.
Any thoughts on that??
