Shed


Your yard isn't very deep. You may run into an issue with setback requirements. Where I live (West Virginia), the minimum setback from any property line is 25 feet (though may be less in town). And regardless of size, and even if it just sits on the ground, a permit and inspection are required. I actually received a Certificate of Occupancy for my 12x30 Amish-built shed.

I'm also in WV and it's definitely less in town. Our shed is about 3ft from the alley behind our house and about 5ft from the neighbor's garage. We got the permit but no inspection was required.

Shed


In my area, a shed smaller than 10 X 10 can be listed as a temporary or portable structure and can be done without a permit.

I would build it as such with a pressure treated skid as the base and put it on a bed of leveled gravel for drainage.

(I put down chain link that I had leftover under the gravel first to keep the groundhogs out. I highly recommend that step of the process.)

Shed


Definitely having a concrete slab is the best. If your handy building a shed by yourself is ideal. However, based on my experience, getting all the materials & exact measurements requires too much time. You do need to be careful with some of the materials from some of the big box stores such as Menards, Lowes & Home Depot. However, if the company is reputable, they will replace any bowed lumber...
