How do you build a shed floor on a slope?
- Determine the degree of unevenness on the shed site.
- Solve modest slope problems by excavating a high side and building up the soil on a low side so foundation blocks are set with tops level.
- Use pier and beam construction for steeper slopes.
- Move the shed location if the uneven site is an area of heavy water runoff.
How do you level a lifting platform?
Take one of the particle boards (or another 8 ft long board) and lay it along the floor where the platform will be placed. Put the level on the board and lift the end of the board at the low end of the floor until the board is level. Measure from the bottom of that board to the floor.

Fill any cracks in the floor with joint repair compound. Press the compound firmly into the cracks with a putty knife and then scrape the surface of the patch with the knife edge to level the surface of the crack. Fill dips or spalled concrete areas — where chunks of concrete separate from the surface — with mortar.
Should I put my shed on blocks?
Does my Shed Need a Foundation? Generally, smaller sheds of up to 8×6 do not need a foundation. Small sheds can be rested on crushed stone with either treated wood foundations or concrete foundation blocks. Large sheds will need to have strong foundations.

Leave enough room to comfortably walk around it, plus it will make it easier to paint. The bottom of the shed needs to be at least 4 inches off the ground to allow for air circulation underneath.

How Do You Build on a Sloped Lot?
- There are two ways to build a house on a sloped lot: using the “cut and fill” method, or making use of stilts.

How much does it cost to build a weightlifting platform?
Building a lifting platform is relatively cheap and ridiculously easy. It cost me $170 and took Matt and I just an hour to build. Below is how to do it. When you’re finished, you’ll have a 8′ x 8′ platform.
How big should a lifting platform be?
The traditional lifting platform is 8×8 feet. This is a convenient size because standard sheets of plywood and the like are 4×8 feet, and this is enough space for anything a weightlifter would need to do in training, even with a squat rack on one end of the platform.
What wood should I use for a weightlifting platform?
We have used BC grade plywood for a majority of our platforms. On two of them we went with AB grade Oak, because we happened to come into some for very cheap. Whatever you use, just make sure it’s a hardwood. Personally, I prefer the BC, because it’s sanded less and has a better grip.
