        Floor-less shed Sign In/Join 
        posted
        Just bought a home and the Shed/workshop has no floor, just sitting on the ground. Its obvious that the ground gets wet in there. the structure appears to be sound, and does not seem to have any rot from it. Is it possible to put a floor in it, or move it on to a foundation. I guess I am looking for suggestions on what can be done, besides buying a new shed.

        You can make a floor - pour a slab, frame up a wood joist system on piles with plywood flooring and then move the shed on top of it.

        Any advice given here is general in nature and is not necessarily valid for your given area. If in doubt check with your local codes enforcement department for what is required when doing electrical, plumbing or structural work on your house. Permits may or may not be required in your area and home owners may not be able to DIY some tasks. I have no way of knowing if you have the skills needed to complete the tasks you are asking about, when in doubt seek professional assistance.

        My advice may be worth exactly what you pay me for it. :-) For the record I did not stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night.

        For what it's worth, in my area I would need to get a permit to move the shed. It's a heap of deteriorating wood, but, since its location is specified on my property abstract, I would need to get a permit to move, remove, or change its size.

        Then again, the fact that doorsmanic's shed has no floor hints that it may not be anchored either. Anchoring the shed is required in my area.

        It could be built like a pole barn.

        Yup. I appears that 'or' is a very big word. Smile
