Fix shed foundation
Hey all. I have a question on a shed foundation that I need help on. 8x12 shed on sloping ground about 15-18" drop, front to back. The front (12 foot side) is sitting on 3 4x8x16 blocks and the back (12 foot side) is on 3 4x4 posts on pre-cast blocks (dek-blok). All flooring is 2x8 framing, with the 12 foot sides doubled. My question is how could I pour concrete footers on the back side to aid in stabilization/strength? This is an existing shed and tear down/move is not possible. My plan was to dig 3 42" holes along the back side (one at a time), fill with concrete, attached a post base and then place a 6x6 under the back side of the shed. Will this work? The shed hasnt moved, settled and is still square but I want to make sure it doesnt move, settle or go out of square. Thank you.
