  • shed foundation

    I need to build myself a shed, about 12 to 14 feet by 8 to 10 feet. I am undecided on a foundation. I thought maybe a skid foundation, ot perhaps solid concrete blocks. I don't really want to dig holes (4 feet in my area is required) or hire a guy to pour footings/slab (too $$$$).

    What do you think?

    4' is required in your area for code, or because of freezing? Or both? Do you normally need a permit for a shed in Ontario?

    I live in New England and my shed sits on sonotube "footings". I know you don't want to dig, but I did all the digging and pouring for mine in just a couple hours. Costs less than $50 and yields better results than skids or blocks.

      yes, 4 feet in both code and frost line here in ontario.

      Did you build your shed floor directly on the concrete piers?

        The shed sits on the piers. For tax purposes, it is not attached to the piers, it only sits on them. That way I can tell the city that it is not a permanent structure, if they ever try to tax me on it. BTW, the shed is 8' x 12'. As it is not permanent, it needed no permit.

        Would this approach work in Canada?
