If your wanting to save some money by building your own Shed Foundation the very first place to begin is the base.
Once you've decided on what type of foundation you want for your Metal Storage Building or the Plastic Garden Storage it's time to build it.
Another simple method of building a sturdy long lasting shed foundation is to get a couple of skids. If you're going to choose the concrete slab make certain the spot you picked is where you want it, as this concrete slab will become a very permanent structure.

Join Date Sep 2007 Location Adelaide Posts 34 My idea of a Garden Shed base I have been using Boral's Connex series besser blocks as garden bed borders. As I have a slight slope, I thought they would make an ideal footing for the relocation of my garden shed. So I set the blocks into a light cement bed, and made up an angle-iron frame that measured just inside the shed walls. When I did the pour (did it myself with a 2cf mixer) the concrete filled the voids in the blocks, which have internal ports to tie the whole lot together.
The angle frame made it easy to screed off, and with the shed in place, no water will be getting in.

Square the frame floor by measuring diagonally as shown above, until both ends measure the same. As you may know, there are many different types of shed roof styles, ranging from flat to multi-layered or sloped.
Along the top edge of your shed’s walls, position four beams that are 1-2 inches wider than the walls flat across the top of each wall’s edge and bolt them in place at the corners. Measure the midline of the two end beams, making sure that the measurements are accurate, as both ends need to line up. Rafters should be 24” apart and need to be notched with a Stopper Cut on the bottom edge a few inches up the beam from the lower end of the rafter.


Installing a roof can be quite difficult, but you don’t have to be a master carpenter to install a basic gable roof; with some math skills and knowledge of angles, anyone has what it takes for building a shed roof. We have îpe tastes but a tiny budget, so we had to go with standard PT lumber (sorry, planet).
Today I’m going to be planting a bunch of Pachysandra graciously donated by a friend working on her own garden makeover. Looks so great, and your post settles an argument between myself and my boyfriend Mark re: how to anchor our deck. I think you should both be very proud of yourselves,The hard work (and aching arms) will be SO worth it when you can sit out on the deck with a cocktail!
Anna – I am so impressed and inspired that you literally created your garden plan a few days ago, and now you have an instant deck. Lonnie: We definitely try to encourage each other, and it it depends on the day when it comes to who has more get-up-and-go (sometimes neither of us!). I do need to ask if you contemplated and fretted which board went where in terms of knots and grain even though in the end it doesn’t matter in any way, shape or form to anything or anybody. I just found out my son has a bee allergy and have all this beautiful red Monarda (beebalm) I need to remove from my garden.
So you’re telling me it only takes a 10% coupon for you to split with we the obsessive mental cases???
A  treated wood foundation will give you the option to move it if you need to move it to another spot in your yard. If you have chosen to use wood as your base, make certain that you use pressure treated lumber where any of it will be in contact with the ground.
If your using a large outdoor storage shed package that needs to support numerous heavy objects then the concrete slab foundation is the right choice. Consider  what you are going to be storing inside the shed, if it's going to be heavy riding lawnmower and you know that the treated wood base is going to be higher than the ground you may have to build a ramp to take stuff in and out. With this variety of styles, also comes a variety in the degree of difficulty involved in making them.
When each beam is in place, they should look like a rectangle or square (depending on the shape of your shed) frame when looking down at the shed. Typically, plywood is used for this step, but you can use any sturdy material that you’re comfortable with.
The site lets you enter the size of your deck, and spits out a supply list and instruction sheets. Instead of diving into projects like you do, we tend to discuss projects for years and then we change our minds and feel relieved we no longer have to do it. Does he initiate a lot of these projects that you two do, or does he just help you carry out the plans? And that is definitely a reasonably priced solution, so rare it’s great to see it done so well! Generally speaking, though, a permit is usually not required for structure that isn’t attached to the house and is under 200 SF.


I will say, though, that neither Evan or I are much in love with the work itself, we just want to see projects get DONE! And sounds pretty easy (of course, a lot of hard work went into it but you guys make it look easy)!
The funny thing is that we needed exactly 27 boards to build the deck, and Lowes (where we had a 10% off coupon) had 29 in stock — and 2 of them were badly damaged! I now NEED to spend more money and more time because of your awesome project and better solution.
Whether you make it out of treated  wood or concrete it must be a firm groundwork that your outdoor shed can set on to give you years of trouble free service.
One of the simplest roofing designs is the gabled roof, mainly because it does not use a truss system. These beams need to be very securely attached, as they are the supporting components of your roof. When using plywood, nail it to each rafter making sure to attach it securely at the top, bottom, and middle.
Neither one of us have ever done this kind of thing before, so we’re feeling pretty pleased with ourselves right now! You say you want to do something, then you come up with a plan, then you do it without much delay. Believe me, we would have been doing a lot of picking and choosing if they’d had extras. Keeping this information in mind prior to building will make everything go smoother and faster and give you less headaches in the long run. Once the two vertical beams have been securely attached, the Cross Beam needs to be installed. For a more finished look, roofing tiles can be layered on top of the plywood, starting at the bottom edge of the roof and working upwards to insure water runs off the roof instead of in between the tiles.
The hardest part was getting everything level since our garden slopes from side to side, but even that wasn’t so bad once we had a system going. But then I’ve spent hours (really, hours) pulling those baby maple seedling from the front and sides. It is best to create a template first for these cuts and then use it to cut each rafter, so all of the rafters fit into place identically. The total cost was just around $300 for an 8×8 deck, including the screws and the stain. In addition to rafters being spaced 24” apart, each side of the roof’s rafters should line up across from each other at the Cross Beam. All that was left to decide on was which end looked better — and the worse end went toward the fence.
