Consult local building codes before assembly. This outdoor storage shed must be built on a flat level foundation of wood or concrete (not included). It is designed with a slight indentation in each corner of the floor so that you can drill through the flooring to secure it to the foundation. Anchoring hardware depends on the type of foundation you have and is therefore not included in the shed kit. Not including the installation of the foundation, you can expect assembly of the shed itself to take 2 adults up to 6 hours. Watch our helpful video on How To Build A Lifetime Shed. (Components will vary between different models).

For more information about assembly of our storage sheds, read the Owner's Manual Sample.

8' x 10' Storage Shed (1 window) is rated 4.527777777777778 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality Shed. Overall , happy with construction quality. The manual needs updating. QR codes that link to videos of construction are out of date and all linked to Lifetime website front page. You had to manually type in URL's to view the videos on Youtube. Bags of screws were labeled clearly and usually more screws than actually needed.Two people minimum need to assemble the shed. The walls required quite a bit of force to seat in to the floor. Shed looks good and I am happy with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to put together I bought it about a month ago, it took 2 of us most of the day to put it together. I seems pretty sturdy. It will serve my purpose of having extra storage space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great investment I bought this shed in August of 2010. It is holding up very well. I live in the north east with cold winters an hot summers. Still no problems. I do rake heavy snow off roof just to be on safe side. The instructions were super, as long as you followed them. You don't want to get ahead of yourself. A neighbor and myself installed it in about a full day. A third person would be an asset. Someone who can just keep track of each instruction. I had skipped a step in haste, and had to back track. But, following them to a tee, made installation quite easy. You definately need a flat surface. I was lucky because I already had a concrete slab where my previous steel shed stood. I added the shutters to the window and it enhanced the appearance of the shed. I would highly recommend this shed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product I'd strongly advise having a helper with assembly. I'd also advise you to watch the lifetime product video for step by step assembly. The written directions are not that clear and confusing at times so the video comes in very handy. Pay attention when unpacking because parts are not always in the same box that are needed for the step by step instructions. Other words they are scattered throughout the different boxes. A better packaging or organizing of packaging is needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Engineering/Design/Appearance Quality After waiting for "cooler" weather, finally constructed this shed. The precision made pieces and excellent instructions with some video that can be played on site from a smart phone were indeed impressive! I am so very satisfied with this really well designed shed! I would highly recommend this 8' X 10' Lifetime shed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good looks and lots of room! I bought the shed about a month ago and put it together myself, about a day and half of work. Everything was labeled and easy to find. Directions easy to follow. The only item that was a bit difficult was getting the walls to snap into the floor. I scraped the holes a bit with a utility knife and that helped.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good design. Form and Function I put this shed together myself in one days time with no one else helping me. The only thing I did not like about the assembly was how tough it was to get the wall tabs into the floor slots. I ended up using a cut 2x6 and my 5 lb hammer to pound the walls in from the top.. This took me the longest time. Everything else was a pleasure to assemble..plenty of hardware to boot. It was installed on a level concrete surface however I did end up having to shim the left front and right rear just slightly. ((hopefully it holds up over time))

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase! We bought this month ago and love it! It was easy to install took my husband a few hour one afternoon. Definitely need two people to do it Very sturdy and look very nice in our backyard.

I want to paint my wooden frame the same color as the door.  Can you provide me the paint color code of the door please?

Asked by: Bogoy
Our paint code is not something you will be able to use to match paint color. We would recommend taking one of the smaller parts to use as a color match.

The footprint of this model measures 94 in. Width x 118 in. Depth. We recommend having the foundation for the shed at least that size.

We have the 8'x10' shed. We followed the proper assembly instructions and installed the 11+" truss rods but they are about an inch too loo long and do not appear to serve any purpose. Could the rods be the wrong size or have we installed them incorrectly?
