Building down to increase height of shed
by Colleen K. Peltomaa
Because we cannot build up too high above the current fence in our townhouse development I thought I could get around that by digging at least a foot or so deep and laying the foundation deeper and adding a couple of steps that go down onto the floor of the shed.
This would give us standing up room in the shed without receiving notices from the condo management that our roofline is too high. I also designed the shed so that the roofline has a slope that is lower at the fence line and slightly higher away from the fenceline. I've already marked out the underground utility lines so no problems there.
Has anyone built into the ground?
