    Do i still need a concrete shed base?


    Hi,guys. I am going to build a plastic shed. And the garden is already paved with slabs,so it's solid.

    Do i still need to build a concrete shed base? Is it unnecessary?

    Building The base is aimed at lifting up the shed,to keep the floor dry in a rainy day,as i find out the floor is quite thin. Can you give me some advice,please? Thanks a lot!

    "If the floor is solid enough to take weight I suggest you get 6-8 additional slabs, put them on the existing slabs and the shed on top. This provides air flow under the shed. If the base is too flimsy I suggest a thick piece of marine ply, seal it with a water resistant sealant, put the ply on the additional slabs and the shed on the ply. Hope that helps."
