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.

Got an RV? You need a Lifetime Fold-in-Half Table
Do you like to go camping or RVing? Don’t we all? There’s one thing I’ve noticed, there never seems to be enough room to put pots and pans, board games, work areas, or just places to sit down and have a nice meal. The problem is space. RV’s don’t have a lot of room for “extra stuff” and regular folding tables can take up quite a bit of room. JEBar, a senior member over at MyRVtalk.com, recommends Lifetime’s fold-in-half tables to solve this problem. They open up to a good working size but fold to a nice, compact size. JEBar says: features we like .... adjustable height .... easy to clean .... folds to a really nice size so as to fit into the basement of our camper (open size 2 X 4 -- folded size 2 square about 4 thick) ..... seems to be very stable .... one concern, will I have to put some sort of heat shield between ou...
