        If not using a poured pad.
        I would use 4" x 4" treated timber for ground contact whether you're buying or building, place them atop your pavers.
        Place the timbers every 4' and run the floor joist perpendicular to them.

        Quanghoc, didn't you post sometime last year about a plant you found when visiting someplace in California? Maybe that's where I got the idea that you lived in California.

        Sorry to take the thread in this direction, but I just remember associating your name with California.


        Right.. you have great memory! Smile

        I have another question, I am thinking about edging the paver area with this. Is it a good idea?

        Works fine for a walk way that your going to use sand to fill in between the landscape stones but not needed for what your doing.

        Yeah I am just being over cautious because Seattle rain fall is high so lots of water washing things away

        And here we go my nice shed

        Thanks for the great advise of having the shed bit far from the fence. Otherwise, it would take me forever to assemble this shed

        It would be too close for my area 8' - 10' from fence, but at least now your able to spray a little weed killer between shed and fence.
        But hey... That's a nice looking shed, I really like the doors.
        Will you be putting in a ramp.?
