help with Chicken coup foundation


I am building a small 4X8 simple shed like building with no floor for chickens. I am trying to figure out the best and easiest way to make the foundation. I was thinking of using the fence posts on one side of my yard for two corners and put another two in for the others. Then just use some 4X4s raised 10" up for the base plates. Will this work, if so how would I tie the 4x4 baseplate into the corner posts?(Just toenail it to posts?).

below is a basic elevation view of the 4' what I am what I want to do

Ayuh,... Why not just build the shed with a doubled P/T sill plate....
Or, use the 4x4s for skids...
Then you could just drag it where ever you want...

No reason to tie it to the fence...
