That's a shame about the moldy floor, but a new roof sounds mighty fine!

Did you have a question about your shed?

Welcome to the forum!

New Shed

How was the ground underneath the shed and the shed foundation prepared?

Untreated wood must not be in contact with the ground or in contact with concrete on or buried in the ground.

Bare ground under the shed must look dry most of the time and air must be able to circulate freely under there.
When cleaning anything including baby diapers, it is better to sweep off or scrape off as much solid and semisolid material as you can first. (1) Less cleaning fluid or detergent needs to be used, (2) Less of a mushy mess which in turn means that bleaches or disinfectants will be more effective.
