I have to keep it reasonable, as my yard is not that large. This is a 10x16, and should fit my x728, attachments, 10AT cart, and some other stuff in my garage.

Looks great Jon. Here is a thread I started in the "Sheds ..." forum on my foundation, the delivery, and an entrance ramp for mine. I've seen too many lop-sided sheds around here. Take a little time and set your foundation for the long haul.

Jere, I really would like to take time to do that, but I have to get something here fairly quick to get the wife off of my case. The guys delivering it said they will level it, so we will see what they do. If it doesn't work for me, then come summer I will reinforce it.

Thanks to everyone for the ideas and advice.

I hope you locate it so the ramp in is level, maybe where the aluminum trailer is.

When it snows, the slightest grade is almost impossible to walk on.

You have the lot to have a straight in shot!!

Great looking shed!!

10x16 is perfect!!

Buy the biggest one you can afford, you can never make them big enough.

Good Advice. Every year I swear mine gets smaller and smaller........LOL

Jere, I notice you set yours on a bed of gravel like mine.

Did your wooden floor settle at all?

I don't know what caused it, but my wooden floor sag a little on the sides.

I had some rabbits and some mice diiging under it the first couple years, but now I added wire mesh around the outside.

I am putting it where the aluminum trailer is now, so I should not have any issues.

Thanks

I built a 10x16 last summer. Sure wished I would have built a 12x16 now. :banghead3

No settling on mine. I had a minor Raccoon invasion a couple years ago, but I set a trap and made an example of him. Then I reinforced my wire mesh, so far, golden. FWIW, I did spring for the extra floor joists of their "garage" model that is advertised to support an automobile. I think the floor would support itself even if I had it setting on corner foundation blocks.

Don't ever Start collecting Garden tractors Or You end Up with a Shed Like this

It's a 12X20 shed On a 14X20 Slab poured a 4inch thick Slab Before I Built the Shed. Planned On a Bigger shed But was In a Hurry Just Bought a Kit It's Better Organized since this Picture was Taken.
