Concrete Shed Foundation

A concrete shed foundation is perhaps the best solution for your shed floor.

The advantages to having a concrete shed floor are numerous.

It won't rot like a wooden shed floor might. If you are going to use your shed as an animal shelter, cleaning of the floor will be much easier than if it was a wooden floor. Its very difficult for a concrete shed floor to become unearthed! Chances of your shed remaining right where you built it on the concrete are very good as opposed to a wooden shed floor.

The one big disadvantage to doing a concrete shed foundation would be cost. Unless you are willing to put out some big bucks depending on the size of your shed, a concrete floor could be well over half the cost of your total shed construction cost.

If you do decide on going with a concrete shed foundation, make sure that when you are laying out your deminsions that your concrete is the exact same size as the footprint of the shed size you will want to build.

In other words, if for example you want to build a 12x16 shed, your exact concrete dimensions should be 12x16. Also when you have poured your floor, you will already want to have the locations ready for you to insert your 'j-bolts' in to the semi-wet concrete to that you can bolt your walls to the floor. This can be done afterwords but is much more work and very time consuming.
