I have found that most counties in the vicinity of where I live want you to use a 4x4 treated post (pier) anchored in concrete in a hole that is dug just below the frost line.

Can I inset the block a bit 'inside' the floor framing so that all you'd see from the perimeter is the edge boards? Yes it will make a difference for the same reason that outriggers on boom trucks stick out and to the side. I think realistically you COULD move them inside the outside edge of the wall, but do not rely on your flooring to hold the weight of the structure.
I remember a few months ago on another shed build where there was some concern on the framing, but I think that was where the wall framing didn't come in direct alignment with any flooring structure. My concern is exactly as you've described above - that there will be weight coming down the walls and redirected (hopefully) to the blocks. If you had a couple of 4 x 4 bearers running under the joists at 90 degrees and set in 6 inches or so, you could then put your blocks under them and set them in a bit from the ends. If you built the base out of the better treated lumber you could just let it sit on the ground. To further clarify your plans can you tell us more about the site such as: what soil conditions you have, what is your frost penetration depth (if any), and is the shed going to reside on level ground? I would just double the load bearing sill(I think that is the right name, someone will if it is not) and use half the blocks.


The first problem we had in building this house is that we had absolutely no facilities to make building a house in the least bit easy. I figured that pouring one pier at a time would be slow enough to do (unlike dealing with an entire load of concrete on a truck) that I could take the time to make sure that stuff was plumb and level and fixable if I screwed up.
So, once all of that is done, I have a pretty stable base on which to build everything else. Dangit, all these years I’ve purposefully forgotten the torture of geometry class and you go and prove we need it after all.
Most if not all sheds that I build with wooden floors are anchored with a minimum of 2 to 4 piers set in concrete.
These 4"x4" treated posts are usually set in concrete in a hole that is a minimum of 6", usually 8", and dug to a minimum depth equal to your areas frost line.The piers are 'held' on to the skids with either mending plates on each side, or post caps. I chose a garden shed because of its relative low cost, immediate delivery, and because it blends in well in an urban backyard. You are currently viewing our boards as a guest which gives you limited access to view most discussions and access our other features. If you are asking can you set block inside so the material on the outside of your building covers the block then yes. If you don't want to see the block sticking out then bury it and raise the floor joist of the shed with a cinder block resting on the dek block.
My worry is whether this would make the walls unsupported and therefore weaken the overall structure.
Underneath the shed I'm planning on throwing down some landscape fabric to keep weeds down. I'm leaning towards keeping it more conventional and then think of creative ideas to hide the gap.
Anyone see any issues or as others have said, should I just put the blocks under the exterior joist and do something creative to hide them?


I'm in Vancouver so we don't have a frost issue to consider and the ground as it sits now is fairly level. It lasted for 40 + years until the frost of the Candian winters finally got the better of them and caused most of them to start tipping. The design of this shed is very suitable for use as an observatory because the roof slides up and down very easily.

I was thinking the block product would have a larger footprint (more like a patio stone) in the advice I was giving above. Then I will use the blocking described above spaced evenly between the anchors about every 4' or so.If your shed has 3 runners, the middle runner can just be supported with the blocking at equal intervals, usually about every 4'. The shed is made by Royal Outdoor Products, model YM808 model, but almost any similar shed will suffice. Quite a job having the old cottage lifted off the peir’s and a new foundation built and then the cottage was placed back on. I always suggest that buyers of my storage shed plans check with their local building inspector to make sure which method of anchoring your shed floor is acceptable in your particular locality. There are other models that are still available that are built in a similar manner and can be easily converted into an observatory.
