8 x 10 ft Outdoor Storage Shed

8 x 10 ft Outdoor Storage Shed


Get organized with a Lifetime 8 x10 ft tool shed. One window and full-length roof skylight provide natural interior lighting. Double doors allow easy access for storing large equipment like your lawnmower or wheelbarrow. This tool shed comes with one 90 in. shelf for organizing your small tools and chemical supplies. It is constructed of UV-protected, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic and powder-coated steel reinforcements to prevent discoloration and cracking. Won't dent and rust like metal sheds. Won't splinter and fade like wooden sheds. Keep your valuable tool collection and yard equipment safe and dry with a Lifetime tool shed. Backed by a 10 yr. limited factory warranty in US and Canada. Not compatible with our shed expansion kits. Made in the USA from US and imported parts.

Approved for Dade Co., FL. NOA 09-0728.08 if reinforced with the Lifetime Extreme Weather Kit accessory.

Consult local building codes before assembly. This shed must be built on a flat level foundation of wood or concrete (not included). It is designed with a slight indentation in each corner of the floor so that you can drill through the flooring to secure it 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. Watch our helpful video on How To Build A Lifetime Shed. (Components will vary between different models).

For more information about assembly, read the Owner's Manual Sample.

Assembly & Manuals


8 ft. x 10 ft. Storage Shed (1 window, full skylight) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of Bang for the Buck! We are the proud new owners of a model #60056 8x10ft outdoor shed. Construction went well, instructions were easy to follow (we had only 1 small glitch which was quickly clarified by customer service). I must emphasize a level firm foundation and remember this is a 2-3 person project. Now that I have finished installing some of the available interior shelving accessories, my wife has classified the shed "very spiffy" Pros: very durable, little need for ongoing maintenance, wide and tall entryway, blends well with surroundings. Cons: shipping weight and size (delivery can be a good idea) and many many pieces to door handle assembly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice shed but one big fault I bought this shed last summer and I liked everything about it. I had no trouble putting it together by myself. I like the ridge skylight but it failed in a few months (split) and unless I can manage a fix water will pour in this winter. In California the rain is basicallylimited to winter. The skylight can't handle the UV even though my shed is in shade at least half the day.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Shed I bought this Feb. 2013 not the easiest thing to put together, had my wife and son help me. Model 60085. Was good up until Oct. 2, 2015 when I noticed my full length sky light also split down the center. Hopefully they make a replacement that is a better quality to solve this problem, or solid roof with no skylight would be great. So now a have a tarp over my shed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 8' x10' LifeTime shed We had to take apart our shed to move it, and some of the parts were either missing or broken when we went to reassemble at the new location. We called and talked with Zac, the customer service rep. He was so very helpful! He shipped the needed parts to us free of charge! Unfortunately, I wasn't very good at describing the parts we needed, so when we put it together, we still had missing parts. I e-mailed Zac and apologized, adding a better description of the parts... and he again sent the right ones, free of charge!! What great customer service!! Believe me, we'll never buy any other brand shed in the future! LifeTime really comes through in a pinch! Thanks Zac! You're the best.Barb and Jeff

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Looking & Sturdy Shed I have had this shed for 4 years now and it still looks great. Just wash it off with a hose to make it look new again. It has remained water tight through many storms and the construction is very solid. You might want help putting one of these up but I was able to do it by myself. I really think it will outlast a wooden shed, especially the looks. I liked it so much that I recently bought another bigger one to set beside it and I highly recommend it for a small storage unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy Shed My 16 year old son and I assembled the 8 x 10 over the course of a few days. Did pre-assembling of trusses, gables and doors in our garage. Then moved everything outdoors to the concrete pad, put down the floor, then the walls. The first wall corner was stubborn, but after that the remaining walls snapped in place. Added the trusses, roof panels and sky light the next day. Everything was well engineered and went together just like the instructions stated. Doors close and latch well. Fits my snow blower, push mower, wheel barrow, shovels, extra shelving, etc., etc. And no more having to repaint or re-shingle an old wood shed! Very pleased with my Lifetime shed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Structurally sound and versatile with many options My wife and I purchased the 8'X 10' storage shed in 2013 and after 3 winters it's still being used daily. On a daily basis it is exposed to wind, rain, extreme temperature swings and lots of sun and through all of this, the only issue that has developed is the sunlight beginning to come loose (fixable) Good Product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality for price We are happy with our choice and look forward to seeing how it will stand up to our Northeast winters. The assembly was time consuming, but the instructions were clear and precise. I will be contacting Lifetime after our next bout with severe weather to let you know how it withstood the elements.

Ask a Question

I bought this shed last year and install it at the end of the summer. Less than one year later, the roof (skylight) split and open in different places, making the shed leaking! Do you have any advice how to repair it?

I snapped the floor together wrong and need to unsnap it what is the best way without cracking the floor?

Asked by: Libby
To take the floor panels apart you will want to make sure you don't have any screws in the floor and you should be able to lift up on one of the panels and pull them apart at that point. If you have any additional questions please contact our Customer Service Team for assistance. Our Customer Service Team can be reached at 800-225-3865 or by email at customerservice@lifetime.com. Customer Service hours are Monday-Friday, 7:00 am to 5:00 pm and Saturday, 9:00 am to 1:00 pm (MT).

When we moved the shed the plastic piece that connects the two skylight pieces broke.  How can we get a new piece?  This one is just falling apart probably from sun damage.
