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.

Sit Back and Relax in a New Lifetime Adirondack Chair
Last month, Katie shared with you that we have lots of new products on the horizon. I'm happy to tell you that one of these new products is a Lawn Garden product that is now available a Lifetime Adirondack Chair!If you're still wondering what to get Dad for Father's Day, this is a perfect gift to give your Dad or husband to help him relax this summer in his backyard, on the front porch, or on the beach with his feet in the sand. (It's also good for moms too, so don't feel guilty about purchasing a matching chair for her!)What will Dad love about the new Lifetime Adirondack Chair? Lots of things, starting with the way it looks. It's manly - no fluffy cushions or dainty wicker. This is a sip-your-beverage and admire-your-lawn-work kind of chair. (But, as you can see, it still hasa stylish look women like, too.) At first glance...
Lifetime Makes Waves at One of the Largest Outdoor Shows in the World
Many people dont know this, but Salt Lake City, UT is currently home to one of the largest Outdoor Industry shows in the world - Outdoor Retailer!And for those of you not familiar with Lifetimes home base, we are only 30 minutes north of Salt Lake. So lucky for us, this show is smack in our backyard. While we did attend this show last year, we went bigger and better than ever this year! The show began for the Water Sports industry on Wednesday, August 1 at the Open Air Demo held at Jordanelle Reservoir. Jordanelle Reservoir is a beautiful venue for a demo day, especially since it is in such close proximity to the show and to infamous Park City, Utah.We took all of our current Lifetime Kayak models out so retailers and potential dealersfrom all over the world could give our boats a spin.We had the Lifetime Wave, Tamarack, Tam...
New Limited Edition Purple Freestyle XL!
This spring, our watersports department has done something we never have before! We are coming out with a limited edition paddleboard. Sure, this will be the Freestyle XL board we all know and love but there is something that makes it special; its Purple! Not only is this our first limited edition kayak or paddleboard, it is also our first purple one! In total, there will be 325 Purple Freestyle XLs out there for the lucky few who can get there hands on one. I am personally a huge fan of purple, and I think this board looks great. It has all the great characteristics of our other color boards; stability, buoyancy, padding, bungee straps and two fins. The dark purple color really blends well with the black bungees and confetti white and black foam. It really pops and looks incredibly stylish. If your wife, daughter, best fri...
