Advice on foundations for small shed and office

Postby Annie.pratt » Mon Jul 20, 2020 9:05 pm

I'm looking to build a small shed and outside office that seamlessly connects with decking. Ideally we'd like a brick/breeze block structure. What is the best sort of foundations? Can you build on gravel pad? Many thanks!

Hi annie.pratt
For a brick/breeze block structure you really need proper foundations and the size and depth of these will depend on sub-soil conditions. The height and roof type will also affect the foundations needed.
