Lifetime garden sheds provide a different layout for your outdoor storage needs than the traditional 8-foot wide Lifetime shed design. The garden shed layout features the entry way on the 10-foot side, instead of the 8-foot side. This allows more side to side storage. The 10-foot side is also extendable (up to 15 feet without voiding the warranty). The 60178 includes 2 90x9 inch shelves to help provide you some areas to start storing your garden equipment and outdoors supplies. Additional shelving units can be purchased separately for more places to store your outside items. To help vent the inside of your shed, the 60178 Lifetime storage shed includes two top vents placed on either end panel at the peak of the panel. On the backside of the shed, there is also an additional window that can be opened halfway to improve airflow in and out of the shed. Order your Lifetime storage sheds here.
The Bottom Line: The Lifetime 60178 Shed is ahead of the pack due to its steel reinforcement in the walls and the steel roof trusses. While most competitors use very little metal in their wall construction, the Sentinel plastic sheds have double-wall technology that is unmatched in quality and design.
