When setting up your yard storage, why settle for a shed that will require
your regular attention to maintain? The Lifeitme 60005 garden shed features
a maintenance free design. The walls, roof, and floors are made with high-density
polyethylene (HDPE) plastic. HDPE will not fade, crack, or peel. No need
to repaint. This shed will continue to look great for years to come. With
an internal latch and exterior padlock loop, the doors of this shed can
be secured to protect the contents in your shed. Steel reinforcements provide
the roof and walls with superior strength. The snow load capacity of the
roof measure a sturdy 23 lbs. per square foot. Store your yard equipment
right with a Lifetime garden shed.
This shed comes with a 10-year factory warranty from Lifetime Products.
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.
