I just put this together. Tip for you - Take your time and read carefully! I haven't moved all my lawn and garden equipment in yet but it looks like this is going to be a perfect shed for me. The assembly was not too bad and I only had help during a few steps. It was actually a fun project. I had a treated framed base with treated plywood built to put it on. The quality of the shed seems adequate and it is certainly the best looking one on the market. I wish Lifetime would use a different fastener for the roof and wall panels other than a screw. Some sort of twist and lock type. Some of the screws tend to strip which is frustrating.
The shed is nice after constructed. but the 4 corners are difficult to put in, and took us parts of 4 days to complete. The engineering is great, but this is not part of one day to construct. ALSO, it is not lifetime guaranteed, it is from the Lifetime company, overall, it is a nice shed.
Assembled my shed in about 20 hours, by myself, using clamps and braces for a second pair of hands. Two main parts were damaged at the factory, called Lifetime and they sent replacement parts.
I purchased this building recently in addition to the 8X10 Lifetime Shed I have had for about 5 years now and am very satisfied with. It requires 2 people to assemble but I was able to do it by myself (not recommended unless no help available) using props and braces so it took considerably longer to complete. This shed doesn't come with the brown corner trim like the 8X10 so I ordered the trim for the 8X10 for a little extra $ and it fit perfectly. Now the two buildings match and look great together. I rated at 4 stars only because the instructions weren't very clear (especially some of the drawings) in some places resulting in wasted time. Also some of the roof panels were very difficult to fit in place. Overall the building is very attractive and the construction is sturdy and should last for many years with low maintenance. If it gets dirty just wash it off with a garden hose and it looks new again. I highly recommend this storage building.
