Special features are great, but the truth is that a storage shed is only going to be a good choice for you if it's got the right numbers. Capacity is obviously one of the most important. This Arrow Lexington 10 X 8 Outdoor Storage Shed offers 487 cu. ft. of space, making it a good choice for anyone with mid to large-scale needs. It's got more than enough room for the average assortment of patio furniture, sports equipment, and yard tools. You could even use it as a small workshop.
Interior height is another number you should consider, particularly if you're going to be storing any tall items. After all, you want the way you store your items to be dictated by what you find convenient, not by the way that they'll fit. And you definitely don't want a storage building with a low ceiling if you're going to be using it as a workspace. Getting to go around saying, "Yes, Dr. Frankenstein," in a strange accent is hardly a good trade-off for having to be hunched over the entire time you're working. This Lexington's ceiling is just over seven feet, so, unless you want to store a lot of unusually large items, it will most likely provide you with the clearance you need.
And, even though you may have already thought of this, it's important enough that it bears mentioning: be sure to check the dimensions of a shed's doorway before purchasing it. If you're planning to house an ATV or large pieces of equipment, a narrow entrance is clearly not going to work. It's not as though you can pick up your riding mower in order to wiggle it through the doorway. Fortunately, this Lexington's 55-inch by 60-inch door opening is big enough to allow most standard outdoor items through without any trouble.
Of course, getting a shed like this Lexington is never going to be as satisfying as receiving your very own oversized check or banishing Fluffy the Yard Destroyer to canine Siberia, but solving your storage problems can make it easier to enjoy your property. And, more importantly, finding a place to put your seasonal supplies is a lot simpler to do than those other things. As long as you keep your needs in mind, finding the right storage building will be a quick, stress-free process.

This is a very nice shed. I put it together by going step by step and did not have one misfit part. It took about 6 hours with 2 guys. I am very happy.
