8 x 2.5 ft Outdoor Storage Shed


Just a little storage space makes a big difference! The 8 x 2.5 ft plastic garden shed provides that extra space you need, where you need it—in your yard. With a Lifetime plastic garden shed, there’s no more searching through the garage or the house for your favorite little garden spade. Keep rakes, hoes, and miscellaneous garden tools right at your fingertips. This Lifetime garden shed also comes with shelving and peg stripsto keep your supplies organized and easily located. Lifetime plastic garden sheds are designed for style and constructed for durability from high-density polyethylene plastic with steel reinforcements. The easy-to-clean, high-impact polyethylene flooring is resistant to stains and solvents. Lifetime’s attractive plastic garden sheds are very low maintenance—No Painting, No Rusting. These plastic garden sheds are UV-protected from fading and cracking and will look great for many years to come. This model is not compatible with any of our shed expansion kits. 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. 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. Made in the USA from US and imported parts.

Watch our helpful video on How To Build A Lifetime Shed. (Components will vary between different models)

Assembly & Manuals


8 ft. x 2.5 ft. Garden Shed is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Boat Locker Ever! We've had this Lifetime 8' x 2.5" shed installed for over a year. We are located in Southwest Florida and are using the shed as a boating locker for storage of all things boating and fishing. The narrow width results in more of a closet feel than a shed and has the benefit of being able to reach everything quite easily without having to step in.This shed has great UV resistance as there has been no fading, the shed is also water tight and has a solid feeling. It was very easy to install, even with a special pedestal to keep it off the ground and adding electrical wiring for an outlet and a light inside. The horizontal shelves and corner shelves have performed well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this shed we were going to put up a fence but then igot the idea of putting these sheds up instead. its great. it hides your neibors view like a fence but how many fences do you know that you can use for storage . we have 4 lined up so far and they look great. inside them we installed black plastic shelving from home depot (about 30 dollars each ) its like having outside cabinets . everything is organized. we can always find what we are looking for.In one of them we installed a closet rod and this is where we store our winter coats and heavy clothing. Try it ...you will definitely like it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It is only rated for 65 mph winds This is a nice little shed. It does not hold a lot. It is easy to put together, and to take down when it is being moved. The individual pieces are not heavy, but together it is heavy, yet not heavy enough to withstand a wind when standing on its own. We have had our shed for several years, and always had it up against a building at our previous 2 homes with no problems. We put it in the back yard at our new house and this morning found it tipped over backwards. The doors opened inward, and everything inside got soaked. Put it against a sturdy wall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Shed for townhouse or narrow yard I bought 2 of these for a townhome I own near the beach. These are excellent sheds and perfect for the space I have. Make sure to follow all of the instructions and watch the videos for some tips on getting the sides into the base. These are the best value for the price. The other brands out there don't come close to this quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size, holds a lot of stuff, narrow profile, great quality. We needed something that could hold all our lake stuff (skis, towels, tubes, etc.), but not take up a lot space on our patio. This shed fits the bill perfectly. Looks great, matches our house, is a high quality product, and was fairly easy to install. Takes 2 people a couple hours.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from assemby Snapping in the walls is not an easy task as it is portrayed.. I bought a suncast shed and all parts snapped together very easy. This one however is a real pain and I am still fighting with it trying to snap the corners an walls. It doesn't just push down like they say..

Is this shed made to keep in the garage too?

Asked by: SanG
The exterior dimensions for this shed measure 92" W x 26" D x 96" H. Most garages do not measure that tall height wise so you will want to check the size of your garage first.

Hi there: Do the doors on this shed open all the way? I am intending to place on the side of my house but there is a fence and relatively narrow clearance. I would need to doors to open to nearly flush with the front side to be able to remove items.

Asked by: Roland
The doors on our sheds do not open completely flush with the wall panels. They open roughly 3/4's of the way.

Can I place a washer and dryer in this shed ? How do I enable the electricity and plumbing connections ?

Asked by: Doron
We would not recommend placing a washer and dryer inside of the shed with the intent to use these items. There is not a way to add electricity or plumbing to the shed without altering parts which will void the warranty on the shed.
