Site Prep:

Please note that certain counties and municipalities require building permits prior to installation.

  • Prior to the product arriving, clear the construction area. Make sure the ground slopes away from the site at least 10 feet in all directions.
  • If necessary, build up the soil in the center of the site and slope away for the high point to provide drainage. Fill in any low spots within the perimeter of the site. A slope of 1/8 inch per foot is enough to prevent water accumulation.
  • We recommend excavating the site 4 inches deep and laying gravel or crushed rock where drainage may be a concern.

Patio Stone Foundation:

  • If the ground is stable and has sufficient drainage, you can set patio stones directly on firm compacted soil. If not, lay on gravel or crushed rock.
  • Most of the Outdoor Living sheds and playhouses include floors with runners that will sit directly on Patio Stones.

4×4 Pressure Treated Beam Foundation:

  • You can build directly on pressure-treated beams or railroad ties laid on a properly prepared construction site. Run beams perpendicular to floor joists.
  • Use a 2×4 straight piece of lumber on edge and a carpenter’s level to position correctly. To prevent the beams from shifting, secure them with ½ inch rebar inserted through holes drilled in the beams and driven 3 to 4 feet into the ground. Leave each side or end of the foundation open to promote drainage and air circulation beneath the floor.

Concrete -Slab Foundation:

  • Typically, a slab 3-4 inches thick laid over a sub-base of 4 inches of gravel or crushed rock is sufficient but may vary depending on your geographic location. Using either mix your own concrete or having it delivered by truck, ready to pour, depends on how much time and effort you have to dedicate to the project.
  • In any event, make sure you excavate the slab area to a depth 6 inches. This would put the finished slab surface approximately 2 inches above ground (remember you will be using 4 inches of gravel as your sub-base).
