Well, pulled the trigger. Got one last night from Newmarket Costco. Comes in two boxes that are heavy so bring help if you are gonna get one. Came to 903 with tax. Now to build the base on a slight slope...any suggestions?
+1 I also want to know this.

Also I am planning on using this on which my wood platform will go. Any advise ?

For base should I use pressure treated or solid wood?

Thanks for your help

The deck block should be fine, anything that will keep the shed off the ground. As for the base, use pressure treated.

I am also planning to use the deckblocks,left over from last year's deck project. My concern is that these deck blocks will raise the foundation above the ground. This might invite little friends of the animal kingdom take up home underneath the shed. Also, I would have to build a ramp for the door.

That was my concern, should something die under there and rot.
Even if I filled it with gravel, I could not think of something that would keep the gravel from eroding down the slight slope.

I figured if I was already digging a level area to put down gravel, then slabs, I might as well fill a frame with concrete instead of the slabs.

Yes, overkill, but always level, never a worry, will outlast the shed on it.

ancasterRFD and Second2, Thank you guys.

I bought this Shed from Richmond Hill location.. Two boxes.. They are pretty heavy.. but I dont think each box its as heavy as treadmill.. You definitely need two people and you will need big truck...

Pulled the trigger last night at Costco in Gloucester. Don't have a truck so I paid them the $100 for delivery. They called this morning and delivered before noon. Now to tear down the old aluminum shed and build anew...all to keep a happy wife :) Not sure what to do about a base yet, might get lucky and be able to reuse the supports under the current base as it will need to be redone.

thanks op

Would the boxes fit in the back of a grand caravan with all seats out?

Use power tools, not like the manual shows... a happy couple with hand tools, lol.
There are a couple of parts where you need 2 people or a tall step ladder (what I did).

I have a question on the wooden base.. anyone have recommendation on 4 x 4 vs 2 x 6 vs 2 x 4 ?

I am thinking outside border is 4 x 4 and inside 2 x 6. Thank you.

Just finished putting it together (in the dark and rain = not fun). Took about 6 hours on my own, not including platform which I made from treated lumber and 1/2" treated plywood. It's an ok deal but keep in mind a pro can build a strong wooden shed for around $2000. The platform will cost from 170 to 350 depending on how you do it. I'm also not super comfortable with the structure, on it's own it's fine but if you want to pile a cord of wood inside, I doubt the walls will support it. I'm going to build a support structure inside with 2x4's or 2x3's it will allow me to add shelves easily as well and make the whole thing a little more rigid (although it really isn't bad).

Overall we're in about $1400 for this (trust me, the platform or base is VERY important - don't skip this step). So for $600 more you can get a wooden structure custom built and you do nothing but watch and drink beer. :) Just putting it out there for you if you're thinking about it. Oh and I rented a van from home depot, drove to Costco and picked up the two HUGE boxes (bought other stuff at Home Depot - tons of cedar trees). Truck rental is $25 for 90 minutes.

Oh and these are better than the wooden sheds you can buy at Lowes or whatever. I'd try to avoid those unless you really know how to fix framing issues because these sheds look like they were built by 12 year olds. Not cool! The plastic ones seem more sturdy if you compare stock for stock.

Just got one tonight. I had a 9x11 concrete pad poured last year when my driveway was done so just going to put it on that. Hopefully we will get a warm weekend soon.
