Quote from BoastfulWren316 :
Sorry I am not aware of a current sale on the 15x8 dual entry version, so I cannot provide a link. But the 15x8 regularly goes on sale, you can see a history of the past sales for that model by searching lifetime on slickdeals.

Here is the link to the 2.5 foot extension at Walmart, not on sale:
https://www.walmart.com/ip/Lifeti...d/15443103 [walmart.com]

But just for comparison, you can buy the 12.5 x 8 lifetime shed from walmart, not on sale, and then just buy two of the 2.5 foot extensions to resize it up to 17.5 x 8. The 12.5 x 8 is sold out but walmart's regular price is just $1,144.43, so you are still saving even though it's regular non-sale price. But keep in mind, this is not a dual entry.

https://www.walmart.com/ip/Lifeti...2/21293627 [walmart.com]

My main point is that you should not be wowed by the bigger dimensions of Lifetime sheds, because that's just a matter of adding extensions in these modular lifetime sheds.

And for comparison, here is a picture showing the update styling of the newer models. I'm holding out for another sale on the 15 x 8 dual entry in the updated style (it was already on sale a month or so ago):

I love how they say "weather resistant" and not weather proof Wink So do I have to hold an umbrella over it when it rains to protect my stuff inside? LOL Heck my cell phone is weather resistant but will void the warranty if put out in the rain.

I would put a return address label on this shed, so when it blows into the next county during the spring storms you might get it back.

Quote from fsx100 :
One thing to note, given the SQ footage, some localities MAY require you to get a PERMIT for this.

Mine requires one for any "structure" over 100sq/ft, so I'm aiming to get a 12'x8' to stay just under that limit.

YMMV.... Check with your town, if you are unsure.
One way around this, in many towns, is to set it on blocks. If it's not affixed to the ground it doesn't count as a permanent structure. My uncle did this for his to avoid zoning issues as it was close to his property line.

I got a smaller version of this. One suggestion is to make sure your ground/foundation is perfectly level! I had no problem putting this together myself until the last roof panel. The ground wasn't perfectly level and it took awhile to get that last panel on. The manufacturer suggests that you poor a concrete foundation to make the assembly easier.

Quote from CrimsonSummer2007 :
Yep. Kinda like all those troublesome electrical grid regulations, and floodplain building restrictions that Texas is too smart to participate in! The free market knows best, and regulations cost money without providing any benefit; Right?? Plus why bother spending any money on those things when you can just get the Federal Government to bail you out again and again and again when it turns out that the "Free Market" got it wrong when they were too busy maximizing profits and passing the buck down the line??

Well when it's claimed that permits are needed, but then there are ZERO inspections whatsoever, or they're walkthroughs - yeah it's a cash grab.

I also had to apply for a permit from our local health dept. Why you ask? Well I have septic, and the health dept is the one that certifies dwellings for use and controls all septic aspects (e.g. new construction or major additions). During the other permitting processes, I had to give (on an as-built) an accurate representation of the shed location and size (keep in mind this was a pre-built, as in, it's literally dropped off a flat bed just like a towed car would be) - keeping in mind setbacks from wells, septic systems, property lines, wetlands, etc etc. So, its location was already determined to be in accordance with regulations.

There is no water or sewer to the shed. There are no fixtures. There was no power. It was a shed for lawn equipment, pure and simple. So tell me why I had to pay the health dept ~ $60 for the privilege of putting up a shed that the other building dept had confirmed was nowhere near a septic or well, and there is no water or other means of effluent? Oh yeah, and THEY didn't inspect either (you know, to make sure it was put where I said it would be, or even the nature of the shed, that it was the size I said it would be).

That project was nearly $500 in many different permits and fees - for an ~ $8500 shed.

I'm not an anomaly - everyone I've spoken to in CT/RI that's had to do permits for one project or another has the same feedback - even though these are ostensibly for *safety*, there are no inspections, or they are just walkthroughs enough for the town to claim they are doing their jobs.

When I finished my basement I applied for permits (the proper thing to do). In the 3 walkthroughs did any inspector bother to even pull back insulation, look at the sil stud (to verify it's PT), make sure the wiring I was using was rated, or whip out a simple outlet ground tester? Nope. When I installed a wood fireplace insert and got a permit, did the town even come out to verify it was installed correctly, that a SS flue liner was put in and a proper cap installed? Nope, they didn't even come out *at all*, just took their $60 and said have a nice day.

Yeah, permits are cash grabs plain and simple, and some wonder why many don't bother to go through such processes.

Quote from jvondiel :
That doesn't always work so well. Around here they use satellite images. I know from experience. Our local assessors office found my shed and incorrectly assumed that it was additional livable space.

It's a tricky thing. For something like a shed, depending on the topology of your property, you might be able to get away without getting a permit. That is, it depends on how your locality assesses properties (usually for taxation purposes, if you have that in your area). It USED to be that they'd only check what's visible from a common area (e.g. road) - so if you couldn't see your shed from the road, and your neighbors weren't rats (unless you have an issue with one of them, I can't see many people going out of their way to call towns to report neighbors), you were OK. More recently towns (or rather, they generally hire a 3rd party company to do this) will use satellite (not very up to date usually) or even drones to inspect properties - in that case they'd surely see a shed or outbuilding (or pool).

For interior repairs, permits are really only CYA. As I said, they're total cash grabs, but I've personally had a case where nonpermitted work was brought up when selling a property. It was a total game to toy with price, but when my wife's grandmother's house was sold, her grandfather had finished the basement (I helped, but it wasn't my house) without permits. Being inside, assessors couldn't see it (he painted the windows with privacy spray), so he wasn't taxed. BUT when it went up for sale, the buyers discovered the work wasn't permitted, and wanted a discount based on that fact. The town could have also been a total jackass and asked for the renovations to be removed, or a hefty fine, but that didn't happen either. When I finished my basement, even though as I said it was a total cash grab, I got permits and I am pretty sure they were less than when I put the shed in! But at least when I go to sell, it will all be "official".

Quote from Dr. J :
Ours is 200 sq ft that kicks you up to the level you need a building permit which is based on sq footage not a flat fee. Had a shed delivered (as in one piece, no "building" going on) and had to get a "building" permit for it. Permits are government cash grabs, pure and simple.
Can you point me to this 200sq foot prefab shed anywhere?

Quote from jasongw :
People on any of the oligopoly services got screwed. It's well past time we stopped allowing people to pretend they're "otherly regulated" scenarios are *deregulated*. They're not.

Regulation isn't inherently bad, but neither is it inherently good. The are countless examples of bad regulations that directly harm consumers. Legal monopolies, such as cable companies from the 70's onward, oligopolies we still see happening, the food cartels enabled by the New Deal--all examples of bad regulations that harm people. Also all examples of how politicians on both sides of the aisle routinely sell out their constituents to their corporate connected friends.

Cronyism, in other words.
EDIT: I can see how a lack of regulation (or enforcement) leads to oligarchy, but not regulation itself. Either way, Slickdeals is not Reddit, let's talk about sheds and not good/bad of political policy.

My comment was with regards to our local codes being such that sheds OVER 200 sq ft require a different level of permitting. Mine is 280 sq ft.
