What use is a Lifetime Garden Shed good for?
Garden Sheds have a different layout than the typical Lifetime storage shed. Garden sheds have the entrance on the length side, which is the extend-able side, instead of on the width side. This allows you to access the shed from the center instead of the end of the shed. This layout makes parts of the shed more accessible depending on how you want to store your products. Typical uses for this shed would be storing gardening supplies and boxes because all of those things can be stored up against the walls on all sides of the shed. If you need to store a motorized device, such as an ATV, you would do better to stick with a regular Lifetime shed. This particular shed has all the steel reinforcements within the walls. The roof trusses are all steel as well making this a great shed in areas with heavy snow fall.
Check your local building codes and city ordinances before ordering. Some cities might require a building permit. Lifetime garden sheds will require some sort of support structure under the shed. A wood framework or a cement slab is typically used.

What is the difference between the two shed models 60005 and 60001?
The major fundamental difference between the two sheds are the doors. Model number 60005 has one set of double doors whereas model number 60001 has two sets of double doors. That is evident in the picture. All other differences are minor. 60005 includes two 90 inch-long shelves and two corner shelves. 60001 includes one 90 inch shelf and four corner shelves.
What kind of foundation do I build for the 60005 storage shed?
Before beginning the assembly of your shed, you must pour or construct a platform. There are three types: concrete, wood frame, and road base in wooden frame or pea gravel filled into a wood frame. The actual dimensions of your shed, at its widest and longest points, our 96 inches by 100 inches. Please ensure you select a site that will accommodate these measurements. The floor dimensions are slightly smaller than this; therefore, you will need to create a level surface that is 93 ½ inches by 118 ¼ inches. These foundations create a level surface. If you assemble the shed on grass or on an unlevel surface you may run into issues during assembly with the doors closing properly. These foundations alleviate such concerns.
Do I need to be present at the time of delivery?
Yes. The shed is delivered via a curbside delivery, which requires you to sign for the delivery. Also, the driver does not assist with moving the packages. Please take note of the package sizes and weights in the shipping tab to help you plan ahead to have sufficient help present to move the boxes where you need them on your property.
