Do it right, and build it just like you would a garage.

Re: Concrete base for shed - what do I need to know to do it right?


To update this thread, I have decided to go a different route with my shed. All site prep will be done by the shed builders, and the shed will be built on site. It will be a 10 x 16 metal barn on skids. Big double doors and 6ft side walls. I went and had a look at their buildings and really liked them over my previous 2 choices. The metal building was $1600 cheaper than my plans for the Tuff Shed (not counting site prep). I'm satisfied, especially since I had planned to dig post holes and sonotubes for the day, which I no longer have to.

I plan to post the pics considering I made such a fuss over a shed foundation and then ended up going with something different. They said that due to this being the "busy part of the year" it may be 4-6 weeks before it can be built.

This is the shed builder:

If you look at Picture 1 in the link:

http://www.morganbuildings.com/barn-storage.html

It'll look like that, but 10x16, 6ft side walls, and the color will be Galvalume with brown trim.

Galvalume:

Edit: Oh, and the metal shed has a 30yr warranty, while the TuffShed was only 7.
Fix'n it and de-nagorg like this.
