Building a shed may seem overwhelming to many and may think it is beyond their skills. In many cases this is further from the truth, and the best way to determine if you can do this yourself is by taking a look at plans. Once you have looked over the plans you should be able to determine if you can do it.

Building a Wood foundation

Building a shed wood foundation for a shed is the most common choice. The foundation should be placed on a gravel bed or cinder blocks to keep the moisture from rotting the wood.

You can build the foundation frame using 2×4 or 2×6 lumber. The lumber for the foundation frame should be pressure treated since it will be on or close to the ground were moisture is present.

When the foundation frame is built it will need to be squared before you nail in the floor deck. To square up the floor frame simply measure diagonally until both sides measure the same.

If you are using shed plans all the measurements will be given making it effortless to build.
