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.

Happy Picnicking - Inside or Out!
When we decided to give away a Lifetime 6' Picnic Table this month, we thought it was the perfect time of year since it's summertime and the popular July 4th picnic season is just a few weeks away. But, guess what? We learned from your entries that a lot of you would use a Lifetime Picnic Table year-round! Of course, those of you who live in warm climates will use the table outside all year. But, a lot of you who live in colder climates said you would still use your picnic table by folding it and carrying it into the sunroom, the basement for a sewing table or laundry table, or even store it but unfold it for extra dining space during the holidays. The convenient folding feature of the Lifetime Picnic Table definitely makes it a very versatile product. Congratulations to David C. of Riverton, UT. He was the lucky random winn...
