Site Preparation For Sheds

  • Shawnee Structures recommends a gravel pad or foundation for placement of buildings.
  • Gravel pad should be 2 feet longer and 2 feet wider than building. Example: a 12' x 24' building should have a pad 14' x 26'.
  • Gravel should be 4-6" deep.
  • Gravel should be within 1/2" of perfectly level.

  • VERY IMPORTANT
