Re: Absco Shed Built on Block Pavers

Hi @BrendanB,

 

What a fantastic sized shed! It looks like there is ample room for all the garden tools and yet not encroaching significantly on yard space. Was this the shed you used Absco Sheds 3.0 x 0.78 x 1.95m Ezislider Double Sliding Door Garden Shed Woodland Grey, as I'm sure you'll have plenty of members asking?

 

Many thanks for sharing your project, I'm sure it will inspire many to do the same.

 

Mitchell

Hi BrendanB, what's the white stuff you spread after the crushed rock?

Hi @pats6182,

 

Let me mention @BrendanB so they are alerted to your question. Do you have a new shed build in the works?

Hi @pats6182

 

The white stuff is lime. The soil beneath the shed was clayey so I used lime to stabilise the clay and give it a bit of strength. Cement is another alternative, but it can break up if the soil is too clayey.

Re: Absco shed built on block pavers

Are there issues building directly against the fence?

Hi @AdamDavies 

 

No issues building it directly against the fence. The structure is actually quite light and so you and someone else could build it off the fence and then move it against the fence.
