How long does it really take to put together a Lifetime Shed?Lifetime storage sheds are modular in design, which simplifies construction and setup considerably. Just about every step of the construction is repeated multiple times. Thus, each part of the shed construction can speed up once you get the hang of what the step requires. This is particularly true of long sheds.
An employee at Lifetime recently assisted in the assembly of an 8x15 shed. During the assembly, he and another guy worked on the shed themselves. The quickest part for the assembly for them was the floor panels and wall panels as those steps are mostly snapping the panels into place. During the door assembly, the process slowed considerably because of the greater detail in parts and assembly when compared to the previous parts of the shed. The roof trusses were easy to assemble, but again it had many more parts then the walls and floor. From beginning to end, the assembly of an 8x15 Lifetime storage shed took two men 9 hours to build.
Smaller sheds will definitely drop assembly time greatly. Also, additional hands would speed the process up by having more people available to place the panels and fasten the hardware. Some steps could even be done concurrently to help speed up construction. Hopefully, this helps in judging your assembly time for your Lifetime shed.
