not sure if this is the right subgroup. However, i am looking for an opinion on building a foundation for a 10x8 shed.

I have attached a picture of the only location. Unfortunately, its close to the swale (a term that i just learnt).

I know i want to have the shed away from the fence at least 1.5 ft on both sides. What are my options on building a solid foundation, factoring in the swale.

I hope the pictures help, i could show others if it helps.

Also, if anyone is in the Toronto, Canada, area, and know of people that could help. that would be helpful

1.5' sounds pretty tight. I would suggest a space wider than you lawnmower.
