Glick Woodworks knows that even the best Amish storage sheds need to rest upon a properly-prepared foundation. Over the years, we have settled upon what we feel is the most efficient, cost-effective, and durable method of constructing the necessary subsurface for the shed to rest upon.
Naturally, shed site preparation has to start with establishing a nice flat surface for our Amish storage sheds. This need for a level surface is complemented by the additional need to ensure that the installation site is properly drained so that there will be no issues.
A level surface is accomplished by removing the topsoil in the area of planned installation and laying down a firm 4 to 5 inch deep bed of crushed stone. The dimensions of this bed will extend approximately 1 foot outside the exterior walls of the shed in all directions. This will keep the shed high and dry for years to come. Once this necessary amount of site preparation work is completed, it is time to actually bring in the shed for anchoring on the site.
