“An easy storage solution for the rest of us…”

Are you looking for some decent sized extra storage without the hassle of paperwork from home owners associations or local councils/governments?

If so, then this low height but roomy storage shed is the solution for your storage problems.


The Suncast Glidetop Slide Lid Shed sits under your fence line so that it is unobtrusive, but still contains a massive amount of storage space.

The footprint is quite large at 6 foot 8” by 4 foot 10”, allowing this shed to easily store your bikes, (at least 3 adult bikes), push mower, extra patio furniture, garden tools or even rubbish cans away from nosey pests.

The front doors open and roof slides back ALLOWING GREAT ACCESS TO YOUR ITEMS. Other customers especially like the sliding roof as it allows easy access without bending over, which is great news if you have a bad back. And the sliding roof is easy enough for kids to operate.

The unit itself is quite sturdy, made from resin (plastic) which is REINFORCED WITH STEEL. It is so tough in fact that some owners used it to house their pets such as turtles, chickens, dogs, and goats. Years on it still looks good and stands up to the abuse!

Other owners have used it to house their generators; the beveled floor step allows you to wheel items in without the need for lifting them up.

Great for storing:
Garbage cans – away from pests and out of site
Patio furniture
Lawn mower and garden equipment
Wood for fireplace
Generator (slight modifications required)
Pool pump/equipment


Like all plastic sheds this one needs to be installed on a flat surface to avoid construction issues (min slab size 80’ x 58’ x 4’), but once done the shed works like a charm and stays water tight, it will even keep the snow out.

Some customers have installed the shed on a flat patch of grass and had no problems.

This thing is easy to put together, one person approx. 1-2 hours from box open to shed finished, and THE ONLY TOOL YOU NEED IS A SCREWDRIVER (if you want to fix it to the ground.)

THE INSTRUCTIONS ARE CLEAR and as easy to follow as any others we have seen (Available here)

We recommend that when constructing the unit, it should be built where you want to put it because it can get quite heavy.

Our Verdict:

Overall… a great storage shed all around. Whether you’re clearing out the house, or just want to park your cars in the garage again, this is a great, easy, storage solution. It has had many 5 star reviews and is made in the USA.
