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, also known as a stone pad. The dimensions of this stone pad 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.

Glick Woodworks moved a 12x36 prefab kennel building for me from York, PA to Jacksonville, FL. It could not have been a smoother process, and they took great care of my building during pick up, shipping, and set up. These guys are awesome, highly recommend!

The team at Glick's was outstanding in every way from the planning to the building. Our garage was erected in less than 3 days. They were meticulous with every aspect of the build. This is an outstanding business!

They helped move a shed built on site, where other companies either lead me along, or would not take on the job. They did what they said, showed up promptly and moved the shed quickly, for a very reasonable price, thank you again!

Cheapest wood sheds in the area, yet still built to last. Lots of options with style, color, and options. Expect to wait 2 months.

Perfect quality shed. Delivered in excellent time and the process from a-z was very professional. I sent David a picture of a shed I saw elsewhere and he managed to build it exactly to match.
