I presume that both shed manufacturers are compliant with local wind codes, but I felt more comfortable having a shed with more closely spaced studs. Generally, the closer the studs, the more durable the structure. .
In many instances the installation process starts with level ground, followed by a gravel pad that is leveled, and then the pavers are installed. This forms a very solid foundation for your shed to sit on, but going through all three steps can prove to be somewhat costly.
This shed can be used as an outbuilding to sell flowers, vegetables or as a central office for managing a farm or community garden.
Some feature steel rods or frames for extra strength, but these panels are not made to take on the stress of sitting on uneven ground.
In order to produce a buying guide, we needed some additional pictures of a substandard shed to highlight the quality differences between sheds that are built “up to a standard” (like the one we purchased) vs. those that are built “down to a price.” We’ve also been well distracted by the workshop drywall project.
For me, Tuff Shed was already leading the decision with the galvanized steel foundation. But I was further sold when I compared the specs regarding the floors and walls!
Now, it’s important to note that Heartland Sheds states their wood foundations are treated against bugs and moisture. And I totally believe they are.

So, I was pretty much intent on buying a wood shed. But, just for good measure, I did check out metal sheds and plastic sheds, too: Unfortunately, metal sheds can rust — like my existing one did. And I didn’t want another rusty metal shed on my hands in a few years. I once owned a small plastic shed. It’s still standing after nearly 20 years (now in my sister and brother-in-law’s yard). It’s served both me and now my sister and her husband well — but they’re ready to replace it. The plastic shed’s paneling is beginning to warp, allowing water inside the shed.

If you want to stain your wood storage shed, you might want to do that now. I left the shelves and side cladding raw wood to show off the beautiful rustic silver color. But, if you have new wood you can stain it as well. (I used two coats of Sherwin Williams SuperDeck Charwood color.)
In the extreme cold, the plastic can contract which will leave gaps for any snow or water to get in the shed too. Manufacturers are getting better with this, although some reviewers are still having issues.
