Shed Progress: Floor Completed

Shed Progress: Floor Completed

After several weeks, the floor of the shed is finally done. There were some delays while I went to England, and it took two weekends to finish. First, I placed brick footings underneath the cross beams.

After the bricks were in, I built plywood concrete molds. Because the shed won’t be required to hold an enormous amount of weight (it won’t be holding any cars, at most a 1,000 pound ATV), I didn’t pour an entire solid concrete slab. Instead, I poured concrete around the edges and through the middle of the floor.

After two days of pouring, the concrete work was done.

Next, I installed the floor, which was made from very thick plywood.

After a day of work, the entire floor was done, minus trim work.

Lastly, I installed trim made from 1x4x10 boards, which reinforced the joints between the plywood and provided a clean edge around the outside of the floor.

To keep the floor dry from the rain until the walls and roof go in, I covered everything in plastic tarp. Next weekend, I’ll start framing the walls!

Hi! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when browsing from my apple iphone. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to correct this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share. Many thanks!
