  1. I just picked up half a dozen heavy duty plastic pallets to use for our Rubbermaid 7×7 shed this weekend. Only need 4 – got 'em all for free behind a warehouse.

  2. Does anyone know if there are extra screws remaining where built? I have way too many screws left. 😩

  3. Now that's cool! Exactly what I was looking for. I would built up the base at least a 1/2 to a foot off the ground.

  4. How waterproof is this shed? I am looking to store a computer server inside of it outdoors. It rains pretty hard in Vancouver.

  5. hmmm the ground on my land is a mix of dirt and rocks (i live close to a shore of a great lake) so drainage is not a problem. i am wondering if this method is easier/cheaper than building a wood base.

  6. Finally, a well done, step by step on how to do a foundation for this shed. Thanks. Questions: Have the elements affected the dirt foundation of the shed? If you had it to do over again, what would you do differently? Thanks.

  7. How deep did you dig down and how much paver base did you fill also how much paving sand sand like how many inches of base and sand

  8. I like your video very much. Easy to understand. You don't go into how to attach the shed to the floor. I was hoping to see that as well. Thanks.
