Base and foundation options for wooden buildings

Choose from a variety of base and foundation options to build your dream garden shed. 


When it comes to building a timber structure, you have an array of choices for your base or foundation. Of course, the most solid and dependable choice is a concrete slab foundation- however, there are several other possibilities that could be suitable depending on what materials you use.

Making sure your foundation is level and stable isn’t just important for the initial build, it also ensures that your building can stand strong against shifting soils or moisture – ensuring all wooden components stay safe.

Not laying a solid foundation could mean serious problems down the line—from wonky walls to door and window issues. And worst of all, your structure might be doomed to premature rotting or permanent damage!
