Build a Level Foundation
You will need a level foundation to place your shed on. Local regulations will govern the width, size, and style of foundation you can build. When choosing the style and location of the foundation, keep water drainage as a top priority. Preferably place it on a high point of your property but don’t build on a steep slope. Building on a steep slope will require retaining walls and more digging.
For a cheaper but durable foundation, use concrete blocks. Use solid concrete cinder blocks, not cinder blocks. Cinder blocks are more susceptible to the winter freeze-thaw cycle.
If you want a more permanent solution, install a foundation pad. You can use a concrete pad but we recommend a gravel pad. Gravel is better for water drainage so you will not have to worry about your shed house skids rotting. Make sure to buy clean crushed stone without any stone dust. The stone dust will pack hard and prevent good water drainage. Check out this blog from Siteprep on how to install a gravel pad.
