7 x 7 ft Outdoor Storage Shed with 2 Windows


Keep your equipment safe, dry, and conveniently located for all your outdoor projects with a small storage shed from Lifetime. This model comes with two shatter proof windows that open for ventilation and a full-length ridge skylight to provide a well-lit interior. You get 42 sq.ft. of floor space for storage and three shelving units to help you get organized. This small storage shed from Lifetime shed is constructed for durability from high-density polyethylene plastic (HDPE) and steel reinforcements. Lifetime sheds are very low maintenance, designed with stain-resistant flooring, and a no paint, no rust exterior. It is UV-protected to resist fading and cracking. Steeply pitched roof allows for quick drainage of rain and snow, and the shorter roof span allows a greater snow load capacity than our larger sheds. For routine cleaning, you can simply spray it down with a hose! Additional 30 in. shelves, corner shelves, and the peg strip for our 8 ft. sheds are compatible with this small 7 ft. storage shed and available in our Shed Accessories. However, the tool corral and the 8 ft shelf are not compatible with this 7 ft shed. Our expansion kits and our weather kits are also not compatible with this model. Made in the USA from US and imported parts. Covered by a 10 yr. limited factory warranty in US and Canada.

Consult local building codes before assembly.

Note: This shed must be built on a flat level foundation of wood or concrete (not included). Flooring must be anchored to the foundation. Anchoring hardware depends on the type of foundation you have and is therefore not included in the shed kit. Not including the installation of the foundation, you can expect assembly of the shed itself to take 2 adults up to 6 hours.

For more information about assembly, read the Owner's Manual Sample and watch our helpful video on How To Build A Lifetime Shed. (Components will vary between different models).

Assembly & Manuals


7' x 7' Outdoor Storage Shed (2 windows) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive Shed We bought this shed through a large retailer. I had misgivings as I'm not the most handy person as far as building structures goes. It took a while, but with assistance from my wife and my teenaged son, we were able to construct the shed in a day and a half. The finished product is extremely sturdy and good looking as well. We especially like the windows and skylight. The directions were a bit difficult to decipher at points, and I would recommend placing the clips in the roof sections prior to placement. Other than that, it wasn't nearly as difficult as I had imagined. Very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy No Worry Shed Bought my shed a couple of years ago and am finally getting to writing a review. Assembly was kind of a pain, but it went together smoothly. Just a lot of steps to complete. The shed has been in two very severe wind storms and a lot of snow and rain and still is holding up like a champ. I've noticed during the hot summer months when I leave the doors open they seem to warp a bit. However, they will still close fine and once they cool they go back to normal. The shed looks great in my yard and I am very picky. I wish I would have bought a little bit larger version as I have already filled it up. Very please with this worthwhile investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome shed to store your outdoor stuff my husband and I bought this for our outdoor fun toys example bikes snowmobile lawnmower and snow blower. we love it and it was easy to put together but you have to have the brains of course to be able to read easy instructions and look at pictures.i highly suggest this shed to anyone that needs to put their stuff nice and secure away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product I did some research and selected the Lifetime shed based on reviews, quality and product dimensions (exterior height). I installed this under an existing deck and had a height limitation. I was worried about the light inside, but the two windows and skylight provide ample lighting, even under the deck. I extended the exiting patio using pavers after I excavated about 10" of soil. The shed was easy to install, looks great, and holds a ton. I am very satisfied with the value; quality and price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shed I love this shed. Everything fit together as advertised, which made it much easier to assemble. I can see that this is a new and improved model with the new door hinges and steel wall supports. It works perfectly for what I want. We store products we make in it until ready they are ready for shipment, so we jokingly call it "The Warehouse."Clean looking and lockable. Cheaper than purchasing a pre-built, easier to assemble than building from scratch.Thanks!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent Average shed! Took a fair amount of time to put together. Floor should be made more sturdy when you put heavier equipment in it the floor will sage in. Many spaces and smaller gaps at the seams where bugs and spiders can easily get in, so you will need to buy a few tubes of silicone to try and get the shed more insect free...Be sure you have a solid flat foundation.. Otherwise seems to be holding up well.. Thanks....

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst shed ever We bought this shed thinking it would be easy to put together. Wrong-very few holes lined up-the roof was the worst-call support and was told to just put the screws in sideways-it wouldn't void our warranty-the vents on this shed are not open as stated in the ad-bought this shed which is more for that reason-would not recommend this shed to anyone

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent shed This shed withstood snow, ice storms and top half of an ice laden 20 ft tall holly tree falling on it in January. Not a scratch nor dent nor bowing. nothing!!!!! I love it. Matches my home colors and still looks brand new. Great birthday present from my family. Roomy ,light inside too.

Ask a Question

We just put up our shed and the sky light is warped at one end. It is not able to sit flush, so water can get in. Can you send us a new one?

Asked by: SC64
Same thing happened to me. Try sliding it into one bracket and gradually insert screws on each side. Work with it slowly toward the back and pop the other end cap on. You have to sort of bend the plastic as you go to fit the slots into the groove.

What is the weight capacity for the lifetime 7x7 storage shed? I have a John Deere riding mower.

Asked by: bigkid
Lifetime showed that in a 4” x 4” square the shed floor can hold up to 300 lbs in that section before it would permanently deform. That is for a small area, so in a given shed you could have several objects around 300 lbs but it would be best to stay slightly away from 300 lbs per object to prevent permanent deformation.
