See our most popular sheds, the Kent Apex Wooden Outdoor Garden Shed, Essex Pent Wooden Garden Shed and Canterbury Garden Shed Pressure Treated! It is extremely important that all garden buildings are constructed on a firm and level base which is constructed from the correct, durable material.
We also specialize in Custom Made Sheds and delivery areas include London and the South East, including Kent, Essex, Sussex, Surrey, Middlesex, Hampshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire & Middlesex. Assembling the base incorrectly can lead to future deterioration of the product such as doors dropping out of square, thus becoming complicated to use or causing a water leakage. Note: The incorrect assembling of a garden building on an incorrect base is also likely to void any guarantee that may come with your shed.


First of all, always remember that placing the base too close to any walls, fences or other objects may cause problems.
Branches are likely to grow and come into contact with your shed, so do your best to avoid.
Check for overhanging foliage regularly as any rubbing on the roofing felt may well lead to your shed becoming vulnerable to adverse weather conditions and even rain. The reason for the original excavation to be 2" bigger all round is to take into consideration the wooden frame, you will now have an internal area exactly 8'x 6'.
If you decide to use thicker timber you will need to take this into consideration at the stringing out stage.


A concrete mix of 5 parts ballast 1 part cement should now be mixed and poured into the area, enough concrete should be poured so that it is just proud of the formwork, it can now be tampered down level and flat using a straight piece of solid timber, the result is a smooth level concrete pad. This wooden frame can then be levelled into the pea shingle for a well drained wooden base. Which ever base you decide to build it is important that the floor has enough support the entire length of the building and this support has to be level and flat.
