When preparing your location for the arrival of the shed, there are several options that will insure your structure has a level foundation upon which to sit.
Site Preparation Options
Our structures built on 4x6 pressure treated skids, and setting them on the bare ground will last for many years. However, buildings set on bare ground tend to settle unevenly so you may have problems with your doors not working properly unless you periodically re-level and shim up the building. (A floor jack works great for re-leveling).
There are several options for preparing the site for your building...
We Can Also Deliver Your Structure with No Floor!
A concrete slab is the only option for this setup. The concrete slab should be the same size as the structure you ordered. The outside perimeter must be very even, without humps or dips, because this is where your wall sets on. Mid-America Structures is not responsible for workmanship of the concrete.
Concrete anchor straps, placed when the concrete is still wet is the best way to anchor your structure. We can install anchors once the building arrives if needed.
A floorless prebuilt model has construction, labor, and material modifications that equal the cost of the floor.
Site leveling, preparation, and permits are the purchaser’s responsibility. Mid-America Structures cannot be responsible for any adverse effects an unlevel pad may have on your new structure. However, our drivers will do their best to satisfactorily position your structure in place and make sure your doors and windows are working properly before they leave.
Helpful Tips to Make Delivery Easy
- Have tree limbs trimmed back 12” further then the width of your building. For example if you order a 12’ building please have accessible driveway 13’. We need 10’ vertical clearance on most sheds with no loft, and a 13’ vertical clearance on most sheds with lofts.
- If your lawn has a sprinkler system, please mark all sprinkler heads with flags etc.
Please view the diagrams below to determine the placement of block supports based on the width of your building.
