Buy Sheds and Barns from the Amish in PA
Preparing for your shed from Sheds Unlimited is an important proceedure. We recomend placing your shed on a stone pad as outlined below. On larger two, three of four car garages and two-story buildings we provide directions on preparing a concrete pad. Please follow the shed pad or car garage pad instructions as outlined and as always, feel free to call us at 717-442-9055 or email us at if you have any further questions.
1. Please ensure that our "MULE" can bring the shed fully assembled into your backyard (if the area is tight, please request a "built on site" shed)
2. Build a 4"x6" or 6"x6" pressure treated perimeter which is 12-18 inches wider and longer than the actual size of the shed
3. Fill the area inside the outer frame with 4-6 inches of 3/4 inch stone
4. Please insure that the pad is level and square
Please Note: If you plan to place your building on a concrete pad please contact a Sheds Unlimited sales representative for details on how to construct the pad - 717-442-3281 -
Shed Skid Placement
Building a Pad for Anchoring

At times local townships will require the homeowner to anchor the shed to the ground. Sheds Unlimted offers anchoring kits which can either be installed by the Sheds Unlimited driver or the homeowner without any special changes in the pad design. However, If the local authority requires the skids to be anchored to concrete, then the homeowner should use the "Skid Placement" Plan that coincides with the shed which has been purchased. Anchors should be placed into the concrete following the measurements shown.

On Concrete Blocks:
If the customer wishes to simply install concrete blocks for the shed to lay on (we do not recommend this as the best option), then follow the 4x4 skid placement plan pictured on the left. Please note that this is the Gable end of the building and the 4x4 will run the length of the shed. Our delivery crew will place the shed just where you want it.
