How To Get Your Shed Project Off The Ground

Ready to tackle your outdoor shed project this summer? We’re here to help. Whether you plan to build the shed yourself, or buy it prebuilt, you’ll need to prepare your yard with a firm foundation before your new storage solution can become a reality.

A proper foundation is essential for two main reasons:

  • The shed needs to sit on a stable, level surface for the structure to remain steady and for the door to operate properly.
  • The shed needs to sit slightly off the ground to allow for proper water drainage and to minimize moisture transfer from the ground to the shed structure.

 There are several types of shed foundations, and the kind you need may depend on where you live, the size of your shed and its intended use. To get started, use our easy shed foundation guide to determine the next step to prepping your space for your dream shed.
