PREPARING THE BASE
A LEVEL solid base must be provided by the customer for the shed to be erected on. Ideal a concrete or paving slabs base, no larger than the size of the shed, also railway sleepers or a timber frame can be used. Timbers must be levelled and placed evenly over the length of the shed. Please check for the joint measurements if the floor has more than one section. Large buildings with no floor require a concrete slab or plinth to assemble the building on to.
All buildings with exception of Cabins, are supplied with a water based preservative treatment, once the building has been erected, a solvent or oil based (water repellent) treatment is required for water proofing the building.
