A log cabin or shed base is an essential part (whether they may be wooden or metal garden sheds), the base has to be properly made to give you a solid foundation.

On the face of things, building a shed base or any other building for that matter such as summer house, log home, or a simple garden storage might seem like a easy task but there it lot’s to think about!

Plan Where Your Shed Will Be Located

  • Make sure there’s access (for delivery and access to all sides for maintenance and applying wood treatments etc.)
  • Surrounding area conditions (Foliage, young trees that may grow in the future)
  • Natural light (a well-lit area is best if the building is to be used as a workshop for example)
  • The view of your garden from the planned area (for summerhouses etc.)
  • Consider whether you intend to run an electrical supply to the building.

Choose the Type Of Base
