A little build site preparation can ensure a level, easy to maintain shed for years to come.
Leveling the ground as much as possible helps eliminate the need for excessive blocking and uneven settling. It also makes the building process go much more smoothly!
Clear away any weeds, shrubs, branches, and tree stumps. A great option is to lay down a sheet of garden fabric, or weed-proof membrane to effectively block weeds from growing once the shed is built.
Our crews need a 2' minimum around the shed for building and ease of access. Don't forget to check with your HOA about spacing restrictions; a common mistake is putting the shed too close to the property line.
A concrete pad or gravel in the area will provide an extra sturdy base. With a concrete pad, you have the option of getting a shed with no floor, and attaching it directly to the concrete pad. In the Treasure Valley, we recommend Tucker Concrete or Blackstone Concrete.
If the shed is going to be placed up next to a house, it is important to have at least 1 foot of clearance between the roof of the shed and any eave that it will be going underneath.
We are family-owned and operated in the Treasure Valley, with 30 years of experience and thousands of happy customers!
