Simply Build It

Just pour the concrete it will find it's own level.
The damp proof course should be a minimum of six inches above the adjacent ground to the wall, at the top of the slope, nine inches is better.
You can of course cut back the ground near the outhouse to lower the dpc.

MANY THANKS FOR THAT.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO PUT THE DPC ON DIFFERENT LEVELS ON DIFFERENT WALLS,AS THE LAND IS HIGHER ON ONE SIDE OF GARDEN THAN THE OTHER,OR DOES IT ALL HAVE TO BE ON THE SAME LEVEL.
