Shed playhouse question


Hello everyone,

I am in the process of finishing a playhouse for my son and I am going to be putting it on a 2x8 deck base on my driveway using deck piers. My question is to level the deck piers is it ok to put shims under the piers or would I need to do a post beam and just level the posts?

You need a slight slope on it, so water will shed off the deck, but not so much that you can see it, nor too little, that water pools on the decking.

Maybe something bad, maybe something good. I guess we'll never know, 'cause you're going to guard it. You won't touch it, will you?

This is a playhouse that is mounted to the deck so no water.

You do not want to shim the piers, use the post to level the beam.
