Lifetime 15x8 shed
Our Lifetime 15x8 shed 7 years later!
I told my husband I wanted a three car garage but we ended up with two with no storage capability. So we researched the biggest shed we could find and afford at the time. We knew that we didn’t want metal for the shear reason of rust. We simply wanted it to last a long time and be somewhat attractive.
The purpose of the shed is to hold our winter items during the summer and summer items during the winter here in the Midwest. Items would include our large patio furniture set, snow blower, lawnmowers, fire pit, gardening supplies, and kids outdoor toys.
We went to a Sam’s Club 6 years ago and purchased a Lifetime storage shed with an extender unit for approximately $700. The size of the shed is 15 long by 7 wide and 7 tall. In essence the shed is made of walls of doors so we could personalize the shed based on our layout and needs.
The shed was extremely easy to put together with no little parts that would get lost easily. The instructions were clear with detailed pictures. Interestingly there were no metal parts. Everything is held together with large heavy duty plastic screws and after 7 years they are still strong and holding. I was able to put most of it together myself and only required help with the ceiling of the shed due to my height. Also of interest, there were no special tools needed!
This unit came with 3 clear plastic skylights and one clear plastic window. All are still clear with just little wear and tear. They did not change colour as one might expect with constant sun exposure. However he colour of the shed walls have changed slightly since they were installed.
I honestly do not have one complaint about this shed. This truly was an investment that has served our family well. There have been no settling issues or leaks, all plastic parts still work, and no warping or cracking. Also noteworthy is that insects have not been able to find their way in because the shed is completely shielded to the outside elements.More Lifetime Shed Reviews
