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.

A 50 Year Achievement
The Mercedes-Benz dealership in Salt Lake City celebrated its fifty year anniversary earlier this month. My wife, Jenny was asked to assist with this event. The celebration was an important event for not only the local dealership, but to Mercedes-Benz as well.In the automobile business it is uncommon for one dealership with the original franchise owner to stay in business with the same car franchise for over fifty years. The award presentation featured a beautifully designed trophy, sculpted with metal in the form of a classic Mercedes-Benz automobile. After the presentation, a lunch was served for those in attendance. Jenny couldnt help but notice that the tables and chairs that were set up for the event were of course made by Lifetime. They used Lifetime 6 foot banquet tables covered with white linens and floral arrangeme...
Win Two Lifetime Modular Cabinets!
This giveaway has ended. The holidays may be gone, but more than likely, they left behind a lot of new "stuff" for you to store or stash. Whether it's new toys, outgrown toys, Christmas decorations, craft supplies, or tools, reorganizing after the holidays is sometimes an overwhelming task. (No wonder the National Association of Professional Organizers has declared January as "Get Organized" Month!) That's why we thought this month was the perfect time to give away two Lifetime Modular Cabinets to one lucky winner to help solve those storage problems! As you saw last week in Charyls' blog post, the Lifetime Modular Cabinets are attractive for use in your home or office, yet strong and durable for use in your garage. The cabinets can be used freestanding on the floor, or hung on the wall. And, by using multiple Lifetime Modu...
