how to build a shed... This is a neat site and really is do-able... only you can't live in it, which is my main goal in building something. You have to be careful about your areas specs on livable housing. There are so many rules and regs. now grrr
Pressure-treated lumber laid on a bed of gravel gives you a fast, easy foundation that will last for decades. Or lay joists on the wood foundation and fill the wood foundation with gravel and lay cement pavers. A paver floor allows water to drain through, so it's perfect for a gardening shed and you can rinse the floor clean with a hose.
