Default Anyone have a Rubbermade Shed?

Looking for a 3rd small shed for pool stuff.
I like that no floor build is involved and want a little plug and play 8x8 or so

I have two a craftsman 4x7 and a suncoast 7x7. The craftsman is on a concrete base and is a solid structure I have had it for about 4 years and have been very satisfied with it just last week I purchased the suncoast from the Home Depot I wish I gotten the craftsman from lowes but they were all sold out within 100 miles of me the craftsman unit has thicker walls and floor they both interlock the same way also the roof peak is a better design on the craftsman . They both took about 2 to three hours to put together for keeping things out of the weather they are fine

I think mine is a lifetime arounth 8×10 or 10x12. I built a framed plywood base for it and it's been through several hurricanes. Its not always 100% waterproof and the door doesn't latch that great but for the money I would recommend it. It looks good too.

We've got one. Been on the property for at least eight years. On a concrete floor. Works fine, storing lawn mowers and yard tools. It has survived a number of hurricanes, tropical storms and unnamed storms. Once a year have to clean it out and sweep it down because critters get in there.

I have an 8 x 20 Lifetime that's several years old. Overall, it's pretty good. Only thing I don't like is that it's not a true 8 x 20. They build their sheds so that the interior dimensions match that of a 2 x 4 framed shed with 8 x 20 exterior dimension. Not knowing that's how they size them, I built a true 8 x 20 base. Then when I erected the shed on top of the base, there's an inch-and-a-half lip on the base all the way around. They go on sale from time-to-time at Sam's club. I got mine $500 off.

Another vote for Lifetime. I have an 8x15. It is about 3 years old. I built a PT platform for it.

This is a good web site, good prices, easy to navigate

I have 2 of them, different styles. One is at least 10-12 years old and is holding up well. The other is about half that age and it’s OK and it leaks and the door won’t stay shut tight.

Actually everything on that website looks suspect! "Sold at cost price & no tax" plus free shipping!
