Shed onto sloped grass

Postby lacey174 » Wed Mar 24, 2010 12:15 pm

Ok so i have a slightly sloped garden, and want to move my shed (which is currently on the patio). I want to move it to open up the patio area ready for summer.

Now ive talked to a lot of people, some said go the expensive route of concreting a base. But more said to create smaller bases to create "pillers" to put it up onto.

So dig 6 holes under where the shed will sit. Concrete these then put slabs on top so i can level out the area. Then ttreated wood planks on top of the two lines of 3 slabs (lifting the shed off the ground and letting air flow underneath).

Then placing the shed on top.

Does this sound viable??? At least 4 people ive spoken to said thats how they have done there's but all internet pages say build massive concreate base, which would ruin the garden.

Simply Build It

Your solution will be OK but use something heavier than planks to span the piers.
