Category: How To Build A Shed Foundation

The version I'm building, pictured here on the back of the book, is built underground, so only the glass and part of the back wall extend above ground level. After the hole was dug and leveled, I built forms out of 2x8 pine to produce a rectangular slab with a rectangular cutout in the center which will be filled with gravel to provide a walkway between the raised beds.
I finally got the analysis back from the engineer that was required by the building permit office, and got a building permit yesterday.
Four-hundred-fifty cement blocks, twenty 80-pound bags of dry concrete mix, five 60-pound bags of surface-bonding concrete mix, 120 gallons of water, and a couple hundred gallons of sweat later, the block work is finished!
Here we see the (very) local building inspector checking the setup of our sump drain and pump.
Spent the last couple of days mixing 3,300 lbs of concrete mix, hauling it in buckets to the greenhouse, and pouring it inside the outer concrete block wall. I spent the last few days stapling up plastic sheeting (to keep moisture out of the walls) and putting green-treated plywood sheathing on the inside of the walls (the ones that won't be glass). All of the wiring for the receptacles, lights, fans, thermostat, etc is in place and connected to the electrical sub-panel in the potting shed.


AJ painted the new supports for me a couple of days ago, and by using the three of us, a couple of heavy-duty cargo straps, and some wood blocks, we were able to slide the last two (very heavy) glass panels into place on the top part of the roof.
AJ found a pretty healthy crop of aphids starting on a few of the plants, so we ordered a box of ladybugs as a biological control. One of the cauliflower plants that AJ transplanted has bolted, probably due to the sudden warmth. As comfortable as the glider is (it’s the amazingly stylish and well built Luca Glider and ottoman from Monte Design), it doesn’t make for much of an office! A lot of design went into the shed structure itself, but the structure design was born from the functionality we wanted the inside of the shed to have. My daughter found your office plans and wants help building a similar project in her Austin, TX backyard.
We decided that an actual office was not only necessary to keep the peace, but also to keep our sanity So, we built our own!
I had a young architect working on plans after the fact since so many people had asked, but it didn’t work out.


I had contacted a architect to produce some plans for me after the fact but he didn’t work out. I do know 2 others who duplicated the shed after they saw it online, so if you want to give it a shot, it’s certainly doable.
Give me a shout before you build…there’s a couple things I would do a bit differently, but overall it has been great!
I live in San Antonio too, and you’re a brave guy for building this in the middle of summer!
