Shed Skid Placement
Building a Pad for
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.
CHECK for LEVEL! Please MAKE SURE that the pad is PERFECTLY LEVEL and SQUARE
Measure the SPACE for your Building 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)
Build a PERIMETER Build a 4"x4", 4"x6" or 6"x6" pressure treated perimeter approximately 18 inches wider and longer than your shed. The STONE AREA of your
SHED PAD should be at least ONE FOOT WIDER and ONE FOOT LONGER than the actual size of the building.
