Our shed floor is built with 3/4″ pressure treated plywood over 12″ o.c. joists. The low quality shed is built with 5/8″ untreated oriented strand board (OSB) over 16″ o.c. joists. OSB is particularly susceptible to buckling and warping when exposed to high moisture levels. This is especially the case at the edges/joints. Pressure treated plywood, on the other hand, is a much more durable surface that will handle moderate moisture very well, and could be sealed for additional protection. For the best surface, 3/4″ tongue-and-groove plywood could be used to further abate buckling.
Since your home serves as collateral for the loan or line of credit, lenders consider these loans to be less risky and charge lower interest rates than they do on personal loans. So your monthly payment could be lower than it would with a personal loan.
Avoiding the proper legal channels could lead to a fine or added costs to move the building after it’s delivered.
Great informative article brittany. Took time to read but it is worth the time 🙂
Pavers are a step up from gravel alone, and are a good value way to provide a solid base for your shed. Pavers do have to be placed on a perfectly flat and level surface in order for them to be effective.
I recently purchased the potting shed from Recreation Unlimited. My experience with them was great. From the moment I walked through the door to the shed being placed in my yard, the team at Recreation Unlimited answered questions and provided information I needed. The shed itself is very well built and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I highly recommend!

Many of us like to find the best deals possible when we are trying to decide WHERE TO BUY A BACKYARD SHED. Of course, we also care about looks and storage shed designs, but our pocketbooks often decide what we can actually afford. Imagine if you were able to buy a larger shed or a more aesthetically pleasing backyard building for the same price as an economy storage shed simply because you took the time to shop around and find a better deal.
