8 x 12.5 ft Outdoor Storage Shed


Get a Lifetime shed and Life gets a lot easier! At Lifetime, we design attractive outdoor plastic sheds to help you get your act together. With one of our outdoor plastic sheds, you’ll be able to find what you need, when you need it. Our outdoor plastic sheds come with handy shelving units so your garden supplies at right at your fingertips. These Lifetime resin sheds are built and designed for style and quality. You’ll appreciate the spacious head room, windows, and skylights, as well as the no paint, no rust, low-maintenance of Lifetime’s resin sheds. Stain-resistant floor included. Constructed with high-density polyethylene plastic (HDPE) with steel reinforcements, Lifetime resin sheds are built to weather many storms. Make it easy on yourself; invest in one of our outdoor plastic sheds. Made in the USA from US and imported parts. Covered by a 10 yr. limited factory warranty in the US and Canada. Compatible with our 8 ft expansion kits.

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.

8' x 12.5' Storage Shed (2 windows) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice shed I purchased my shed 1. Month ago and have to say what a roomy and well made shed this is. So far the only issue I had was aligning the front doors but that is a foundation issue other than that it's really nice

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Durability I bought this storage shed when they first came out, about 10 years ago. It still looks like new. It was easy to put up and as new accessories became available, we added them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, great fit I was looking for a shed, I wanted one that I thought my daughter and I could put together. A wooden one was out of the question. It took us 3 day but what a wonderful storage unit. Bonus never have to paint

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Assembly easy when you follow the instructions Took 2 days for 3 adults to assemble including the base. Definitely need someone to constantly check instructions to make sure each step is followed in order. Once is locked together becomes quite sturdy. We put it up 3 weeks ago & have had quite a bit of rain. Hasn't leaked at all yet. ** Note that the shelving brackets & supports all go on the rear wall of the shed **

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My last shed After going through three sheds in the last thirty years, I bought a Lifetime. I have had this for four years. It will outlast me. This is truly heads above those metal sheds. It is the last one I will ever purchase. Quality throughout and nice features such as sliding windows, skylights, non skid solid floor and handy shelves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth The Money! I just put my 8x12.5 shed up on a wood platform on sona tubes filled with concrete. It is very important to have your platform level. The one corner wasn't quiet level, so the doors didn't fit correctly, but if you read in the manual on how and where to shim a little the doors fit perfectly. Very good product.

What clearance is required for assembly (that is, how far from fence line)?

Asked by: Julius
You want to be able to at least walk around the outside of the shed but need much more clearance than that.

How do I go about replacing the corner pieces to my Lifetime shed purchased back in late 2005? (8' x 12.5'). All four corners are splitting, thus allowing outside rain into the shed.

Asked by: Alan R
For replacement parts, please contact Customer Service at 1-800-225-3865 or email at customercare@lifetime.com.
