Shed too low for doors to open. Need advice.


I was thinking of adding a small brick entryway, but now would just be happy if the doors opened. The previous owners must have measured wrong I guess. My only ideas so far are to regrade a larger area than I want, the reshape the ground... Any other options? Landscaping web album

Would adding a higher thresh hold and shortening the door be an option? Jacking up the whole shed was my first thought. --Mike--

I'd either...

Jack up the shed

Dig it out & put the brick down....might have drainage issue then
