Consult local building codes before assembly. This 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, read the Owner's Manual Sample.

8' x 5' Storage Shed (1 window) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my needs! This shed has been great for my needs and has not disappointed me. I bought a 8’x5’ shed for my first home and when we sold our home a few years later and moved into our new one I was really kicking myself for not taking the effort to bring it with me so I bought another one. I really like this size of a shed because it is low profile enough not to get in the way of the yard but big enough to fit what I need in it. I put it together by myself with the exception of two steps when I had my wife hold something while I screwed a piece into place and it took me roughly five and a half hours. The instructions were easy to follow and they provided a lot of extra hardware in the kit just in case so that was nice. I placed my shed on a homemade skid foundation and screwed it down in each corner with a washer for extra strength and with all the windstorms here and at my last home I have never been nervous about it blowing over. I currently have a snow blower, lawnmower, wheelbarrow, stack of tires and some other various yard tools in my 8’x5’ shed and it all fits comfortably. What I like about the newer model over the older one is the latching system for the door, it feels more secure and stable compared to the older model. I also like the window on the side and in the doors as well as the skylight that allows so much light in. My last older model didn’t have any windows and if felt like a cave but that is not the case with this newer model. I also like the air vent that allows hot air to escape and prevents it from getting too hot inside and yet prevents bugs from getting in. For a shed this size and at this price it has been exceptional. I have received several complements on the color and design of it from neighbors and family and they always are shocked with how much can fit into it. It really frees up my garage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value, comes with shelving We bought this shed because our garage was getting too full. My husband and I were able to put it together in about 5 hours. I am surprised on how much we can fit in the shed. The snow thrower and lawn mower on one side and gardening supplies on the other side. The window is a nice feature as it lets in a lot of natural light. There is also a 8' x 5' shed that does not have a window for $50 less. But this shed with the window includes 3 shelves, two corner shelves and two small pegboards for hanging tools. These are a great value for an additional $50 and would cost much more if bought separately from the shed. The shelves are sturdy and able to hold a lot of stuff. We were able to free up a lot of space in the garage (and it forced us to get rid of stuff that we did not use anymore and give away to good will which is a plus also). We rented a cement mixer 2 weeks before we put up the shed and poured a 9' x 5.5' concrete slab as a base for the shed. Besides the neighbor's cat walking across it, it worked great and really make the shed stand out. Only had the shed up for a week but we are very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shed! Have had this shed in our backyard for over 2 years. We keep garden tools and supplies, and our lawn mower in it. It has handled all our use and all the weather very well. We included the roof kit in our original order and it handled over 100 inches of snow last winter without a problem. Am very pleased with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Shed Yesterday I put the shed together myself in about 10 hours. It would have been easier to have an extra pair of hands to help but as a previous reviewer mentioned, it can be done by one person, with patience and tenacity! I'm very impressed by the quality of the materials, as well as the engineering and design of the shed itself. I believe this shed should last a good long time. The only negative I can share relates to the graphics/sketches in the directions. At times, they were too small or unclear, making it difficult to identify some of the many, many parts, especially at the beginning. But, overall, the directions were clearly written and accurate. In the end, I believe you can't miss with this shed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Assembly of corner & wall segments I have an 8 x 5-ft shed. And it is a great shed / shop.The ONLY complaint I have was attempting to snap the corrner / wall segment tabs into the flooring slots. That was extremely difficult if not impossible. Simply pulling down on these segments to install corners / walls into the flooring did not work for me.I tried two methods that helped. The first was a heat gun to "soften" the tabs and slots. This method took some time for the tabs / slots to warm up.The best method was to place the corner / wall segments in-place on the flooring and spray the tabs / slots with WD-40. Bingo! ! !Also, to strenghten the flooring, I installed cement backer-board that made the flooring substantial. Now, no worry piercing the flooring.Also, I would suggest purchasing the shelving vertical bars to strengthing the side walls.

Where can this shed be seen?

Asked by: Bobby Lou
It is all up to the stores in your area for what they decide to place as a display. We would not have a list of where a specific shed is being displayed. All of our sheds are built very similarly so you could always look at a different model that is on display to take a look at one of our sheds.

What size (outside dimensions) should the wood platform be for the 8' X 5' shed? Do you recommend a moisture barrier under the 3/4" plywood?

Asked by: DrK1
It is recommended for a slight overhang on the platform. We do recommend to put gravel under the plywood for a moisture barrier.
