FORE!

We had a great time at the Lifetime Products company golf tournament this past Saturday. Instead of working in the yard like I usually do, it was nice to take the day off and dig in someone else’s yard – that’s a jab at my divot taking when I golf. During the tournament I had to take a break – much to the relief of my team mates – to do an interview on the Homefront with Don Zeman radio show. I don’t think my teammates missed me since I wasn’t contributing all that much.
It was a lot of fun to participate in the show. Don, the host, recently purchased an 8x10 Lifetime shed to replace his existing shed. I guess I shouldn’t name the brand of shed he was replacing, but let’s just say it was maid out of rubber and he didn’t like it. He had a lot of complements about our shed and fortunately did most of the talking. (Don’t you hate the way your own voice sounds!?)
During the show we discussed the different size of shed options that Lifetime offers. Basically we currently have four different footprints to choose from:

  1. 8ft. wide : This footprint is our most commonly sold size. It comes in or can be made into the following depth dimensions : 8x2.5, 8x5, 8x7.5, 8x10, 8x12.5, 8x15.

  2. 10ft. wide : This footprint is essentially our 8ft. wide shed but we have taken the doors from the end of the shed and put them in the middle. This allows for a division of your stuff into to halves. Sort of like his and her. Guys you can store all your great stuff like Golf Clubs, Motorcycles, those scrap pieces of wood you may someday need, etc, on the left and your wife can store all their useless junk like Christmas Decorations, Halloween Decorations, Arbor Day Decorations, etc, on the right. This shed can also be expanded up to 15ft. wide with expansion kits.

  3. 11ft. wide : Is available in 11x3.5, 11x8, 11x11, 11x13.5 and I have seen it expanded up to 11x26 which is the biggest we recommend.

  4. 15ft. wide : This model is also like #2 above but already expanded to the limit and with a different window configuration. Again, it can be used to divide his and her stuff like Easter Decorations, Spring Equinox Decorations, etc, from the really useful stuff like that wire mesh I am determined to fine a use for.

Anyway, I hope this clarifies things a bit, as I have recently been receiving some questions about the shed sizes we offer. It’s a good thing I’m pretty good at gardening because my golf game stinks!

Kudos on the radio interview! I hate the sound of my own voice too, but I can't help but voice the other side of your contrast between men and women’s storing habits.

Scrap pieces of wood and metal... isn’t that what building supply stores are for? The last time I helped my parents clean out their garage, we had to sneak a load to the local charity while they were on vacation.

My dad was trying to store a collection of random PVC pipe sprinkler joints! On the other hand, the treasure trove of stored decor that you lovingly call “useless junk” is really a household essential.

Sometimes it’s the only thing that makes a holiday feel like a holiday... which, every woman knows, is nearly as important as food storage (and rotated MUCH more often if you live at my house).  Any woman’s probably got at least $230 worth of household art in those neatly organized, labeled boxes... now that justifies taking some space in your shed.

Things I Learned When Registering My Lifetime Manta Kayak
Last week, we journeyed to Ohio for our annual summer vacation to visit my parents. While we were there, Lifetime shipped me a Lifetime Manta tandem kayak to use so I could share some personal experiences and reviews with you.But, before we could legally use the Lifetime Manta Kayak in Ohio public waters, we had to register it as a watercraft with the State of Ohio. Ideally, the process should be quick although, unfortunately,the day we went the service wasn't exactly speedy or friendly. But, we simply filled out a form with our contact information and kayak information, paid $25 for a 3 year registration (cost may vary with each state), and received our registration number and tag decal. Then, we headed to Walmart to buy the numbers to stick on the side of the kayak. That's it. Done. But, in case you are new (like me) to r...
The Wonderful World of Sit-Inside Kayaks!
This kayak season we are stepping up our game! Exciting right? Most people have seen our many sit-on-top and fishing models, but this year we have gone in a whole new direction! I would like to introduce our newest member of the kayak family, the Lifetime Payette 116! This is our first sit-inside kayak design and it is sure to knock your water socks off! It comes in at 98 and is has the perfect mix of stability and speed.The sleek design makes it a bit faster than other kayaks that are similar in length without compromising the stability you are accustom to in a Lifetime Kayak! Think best of both worlds: speed of a longer kayak, stability of a shorter kayak. The built -n seat and seat back make it comfortable while the molded-in carry handles make for easy transport. Need to take some snacks with you on your paddle? The Paye...
