Foundation For Shed


You can build your own garden shed from Popular Mechanics plans. Just follow the steps and pictures. Depending on it's size, you'll need a foundation for the shed. "Building" a shed foundation is a very important step in the process. There are two types of foundations that are used the most often. These are on grade and frost proof. Solid concrete blocks or "concrete" shed foundation is used with the on grade. The frost proof foundations are more difficult to build but are the more permanent choice. The PM plans also show "how to" build a shed foundation.

Foundation For Shed

Foundation for shed will depend on the size of your building, the part of the country you live in and the type of shed you are building. The "block" shed foundation, "storage" shed foundations, and "garden" shed foundations will vary depending on the size and the extremeness of the whether in your area.

If your building is very small, you might not even need much of a foundation, you could even place it on something like a patio slab. If you still want to have some type of foundation for your shed the "gravel", "pier", or "wood" shed foundation will be acceptable for a smaller shed in an area where the temperature is not severe. There are some instances with small foundations where some movement can even be tolerated. The strongest and longest lasting are the frost proof foundations.

In order to insure quality craftsmanship you must remember to prepare your site for the construction. Before any of the materials arrive the land needs to be cleared of all debris. This includes rocks, grass and roots or tree stumps. As you determine and lay out the foundation, remember that it should support the weight of the shed, make it even. The wood at the base needs to be protected so no moisture comes up from the ground. Also, take precautions so that nothing grows or no creepy crawlies grow underneath and around the area. If you are comfortable with the on site foundation for shed be sure to use pressure treated lumber and or solid concrete blocks.

If you plan on a do it your self project, plan on researching the shed foundation "plans". Since the whole family will be using it, give your best effort to include them all in the design choice and maybe in the construction of your "do it yourself" shed foundation and building.

Before spending effort, time and money you may want to check your local zoning regulations to make sure you can build a foundation in your back yard or anywhere else.

In general, the larger the shed the more sturdy the base needs to be. For sheds bigger than 8"x6" it is best to use a concrete slab for the foundation.

How do I know what's the best foundation for my shed? I'm not very handy and I don't want to spend a lot of money. Should I contact a professional for this type of job?
