Haven’t had time to post on Sunday, so here’s an update from yesterday. Today we will be leveling the foundation and securing it together.
Supplies needed: gravel, long piece of lumber, collated nails.
Tools needed: shovel, pick-axe (optional), bubble level, tape measure, framing nailer.
All the tools you need for the job
Step 1: foundation. You need precast cement piers with wooden cap, pressure-treated beams, a shovel, tape measure, gloves and lots of patience. Spray paint and string are optional, but they help.First, lay out the beams on the ground where you will build your shed and get them straight and parallel. Measure between the beams and diagonally to make sure you get a tight box. Set up string as a guide and use visible spray paint to mark the position of your foundation piers.
A helper is invaluable when getting your foundation piers.
