Wood Shed Racked

What are typical causes for a shed that racks and what are the noticeable supporting elements of proof?

Shed is on a stone pad and not yet 3 years old. One door appeared to be warping (RHS). When we put a framing square on rhs door opening corner we detected that the opening was out of square by 3/8".

If the perimeter support is not below the frost line, it will not be stable, and whatever sits on it will also move. That is where i would look for the solution to the problem.

Someone put the shed on an inadequate base. The proof is that it's racking.
