Shed Foundation Options You Can Use

Having a sturdy shed foundation that's built right is so important for the life of your shed. If not done properly,  building your new shed will be a struggle.  You will probably encounter everything from walls not lining up to roof sheeting not fitting properly.

Down the road there is also a likely chance that you will experience things like your shed doors not closing properly, windows not opening, and leaks from your roof, just to mention a few!

Your Shed Foundation Can Be One of The Following:

Concrete Shed Floor

Concrete Shed Floor/Foundation

This option is one of the best, but also the most expensive.  Learn more about using the concrete shed foundation here.

Shed Foundation With Concrete Anchors

Wooden Shed Floor w/Concrete Anchors

One of the most widely accepted methods of a shed foundation is building a wooden shed floor and anchoring is down with concrete anchors.  Learn more here.

Wooden Shed Floor On Blocks

Wooden Floor On Blocks

A framed shed floor resting on concrete blocks is another shed foundation option.   Learn more about this option.

Wooden Shed Floor On Gravel Base

Wooden Shed Floor on Gravel

Another shed foundation option is building your shed floor on a base of gravel.  Here's more information if you are considering this option.

If you have the opportunity to purchase one of my shed plans, you will quickly find out that my favorite of all shed foundations is the wooden floor built on 4x4 skids which are anchored to the ground with 4x4 posts/piers sunk in concrete. Out of the 10 or so county's around where I live, and purchased a building permit, this was the required method of anchoring a shed floor.

Here's more information you can use to build your shed floor.
