Building a garden shed on a slope

Woodworking jobs mn

The crushed stone is about 50 mm deep at the lawn edge but thickens to 75 mm after about 150 mm. You should make your own decision as to whether this is necessary based on the following information. Home Improvement Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for contractors and serious DIYers.
I'm wondering if it would be appropriate to install concrete piers so everything is off the ground? I would definitely keep the wood off the ground if you want to keep the shed around for the long term. Standard pier blocks with built in Anchors should give you all the strength you need for less hassle and cost.

How many concrete piers do I need to support a 10 x 10 wooden floor supporting a 1600 lb shed? What do I need to consider when enlarging a basement apartment by opening up an attached garden shed? What is the meaning of the phrase 'sometimes the bar eats you' in The Big Lebowski? We are a small Father and Son business who have been transforming peoples gardens since 1990. Standard installation on wooden pressure treated skids (a very common technique that can last decades, but not forever) may need no permit, but concrete of any sort may.


We are very good at what we but most importantly we enjoy what we do which shows in all of our work.
A wood base seems inadequate to me, but a full-on poured concrete pad is probably overkill.
Concrete is OK (as long as the location of the shed complies with setback requirements and isn't habitable). We believe if you stick to what you know rather than trying to do all various types of work you become very compitent in what you do take a look at our pictures and you will see the high standard of workmanship in all of our projects.
