    What about a slab of concrete for a floor? Or how about a surrounding footing with gravel in the middle for your floor?

    you're not actually explaining why someone would do this or the upsides of downsides of each foundation type.

  3. concrete slab?
    concrete piers?

    What if I'm building on a solid rock floor that has a lot of different heights and such

  5. i don't get the point in the bottom joists why not just ignore them and stand the base in blocks?

  6. Most of the videos I see on YouTube build the foundation on wood posts that are anchored to the concrete footers. The posts are notched to support the floor beams. Is there any advantage to beams on posts vs. beams directly anchored to the concrete as you have in your last two examples?

    I want to build a kit shed for my office. I want it to last a very long time and I don't think I'm up to laying a concrete slab myself. I am concerned if I use beams that they will rot in 25 years. I want the shed close to the ground so the 4×4 beams will but slightly under the ground to resemble a concrete slab. I was thinking of replacing the wood 4×4 with steel i beams and mount them to concert pillars sunk about 3 feet. Is this overkill?

  8. there are more ways, concrete blocks, rock side walls, poured foundations an even more.
    Anything to keep the shed off the ground, but I'd suggest a crushed stone base that is compacted 6" and drainage. Everything depends on how big a shed and what its used for.
    And or how you will move into and out of with items,

  9. Great video, I have a different way of doing the most common method you described(first on the your list)and that is to build the base on patio pavers, first lay the pavers slightly oversized, flat then install the base on it, great way to stop rodents from building their homes under the shed and also it reduces or stops the base from rotting.

  10. very good video. Thanks
