New Lifetime Shed Has More Windows and Vertical Siding

vertical siding shed.jpgWe have been busy over the past year developing a new shed. The new Lifetime 8'x 10' shed capitalizes on the experience we have gained from our previous sheds and brings some great new features. 

If you are familiar with our sheds, you will notice the overall look of this new shed is different. One of the most noticeable differences is the shed walls now have a vertical siding look.

Next difference? Windows!  We do extensive market research with customers and you told us you like windows. So, we listened to your feedback and added even more windows by putting some in our newly designed doors. Windows allow light into the shed and give it a nice look. The operable window in the sidewall allows airflow so if you are working in the shed you can stay cool.

Another difference in this new shed is the roof pitch is higher. This gives the shed a new look and allows for overhead storage space inside the shed.  We also have included a full-length roof ridgeline skylight which our customers also requested.

From a technical standpoint, we have updated how the shed goes together too. We added a new wall connection that makes the shed even more simple to put together, yet preserves the strength and integrity of the shed.

So, what do you think of our new design?  Leave us a comment and let us know.  Personally, I think it's pretty awesome. It has been fun to watch our engineers stretch as they try to improve on our line of sheds which have already proven very successful. We have pushed them to come up with something new, then something else new, then something else new ... I have wondered at what point I am going to walk into their offices and they say "STOP"! I am very proud of our engineering team and the great ideas that they continually come up with.

If you would like one of these new Lifetime sheds, visit your local BJ's Wholesale Clubs or Costco Canada (western region only) or purchase one online in the Lifetime Store.

Lifetime 65 gal composter very rugged. However, I wish they had a better "labeling system" for parts. They use the same 3 letter code for most parts making it difficult to tell difference in assembly.

I have seen nothing that tells you how to attach the shed floor nor suggestions for what kind of foundation is needed. I some ideas about the designing the foundation but the attaching the shed floor has me puzzled. We are Looking to buy the 11x13.5 shed (#6415). Thanks Michael Houser, P.E.

Hi Michael,

The link below will take you to our online instructions for model 6415. In the instructions you will find more information about building the shed foundation, and how the walls assemble.

TV News Story Highlights Lifetime Products
This past Sunday night, Lifetime Products was featured on Utah's KSL news as part of an in-depth TV story about the business economy in Utah. The story kicked off a week-long series focusing on the economy in Utah. It was an informative story focusing on job growth in Utah and the appeal of Utah for businesses. The story shows an inside look at Lifetime's factory and includes an interview with Lifetime President Richard Hendrickson inside the Lifetime Store. As we shared last month on this blog, Lifetime recently received a tax incentive from the Governor's Office of Economic Development (GOED) to expand our manufacturing facilities in Utah. During the KSL interview, Hendrickson talks about our products, vertical integration, and our decision to expand in Utah. Specifically Hendrickson said on KSL, "We've got the most capa...
Think Inside the Box
We love getting feedback from our customers. We have had all kinds of interesting topics sent in to us. This one was no exception. Although we cant officially promote use of our products for anything other than their intended use, I thought this one was pretty clever. Stan wrote in telling us how much he loves his Lifetime Outdoor StorageBox. Stan likes to cook meat using a smoker and needed a place to store his smoker on his deck and protect it from the elements. He devised a cleaver way to do this with his Lifetime Storage Box. First, he secured the box standing on one end. Then, he built a sliding shelf in it. Now, whenever he wants to smoke his meat he opens the door of the box and slides out the shelf. Voila, the smoker is ready to go. When he is done with it, and the smoker has cooled, he slides it back into the box sh...
