First Priciple For Building Storage Sheds: Foundation
Find a decent spot and lay your storage sheds foundation. Best practice is to dig out and level the surface with a mixture of pebbles and building sand. Then outline with pegs and string and build a wooden case around it.The foundation should be larger than the surface of your storage shed.
Pour concrete in the casing or use slabs. I prefer one large concrete slab because it’s really hard for weeds to get through. Small paving slabs need to be maintained and inspected more.

Second Principle: Let The Weather Be Your Friend
Keep a close eye on the weather forecast. Building a shed will take several days and you will be best off if you have some help from friends and some friendly weather. It will keep the spirits up and this will reflect in the building quality of your shed.
Third Principle: Prepare Tools And Working Space
Building a shed takes space as you will be working with large timber beams , boards and heavy woodworking tools like band saws.
Your tools have to be well maintained and ready for use.
