Site Preparation Guidelines for Storage Sheds

A level pad of ¾" crushed stone, 3" – 4” deep, 1' larger than the size of the shed (for example, a 10’ x 14’ building would require a pad at least 11’ x 15’). This will allow for better drainage around the perimeter of the shed for rain/snow melt dripping off the eaves - especially, if you are not planning on installing rain gutters on the shed. Water splashing directly onto the ground will, eventually, create a muddy area and splash up onto the shed walls. The gravel shed foundation prevents this to extend the life of the building. But this is your choice.

How level does my site need to be?
    We do not recommend having the site more than 12'' out of level.  Keep in mind that if the front of the shed is lifted up to level, you will need to build steps or a ramp to access your shed. Please supply blocking if required. Thanks

Do I need a permit?
    The permit is your responsibility and it is your choice whether or not you purchase one. Please determine what rules and specifications apply to you before purchasing your shed. We can draw drawing upon request.
   Also check for any neighborhood covenants or other restrictions before purchasing.
