Arrow 10 x 12 shed floor kit

by Mark Antonacci
(North Little Rock, AR)

When using the floor kit, we ran into several problems besides slicing the heck out of my foot on the sharp sheet metal. The dealer, in this case Lowe's, did not mention how difficult it is to use the floor kit on an uneven surface when you have to use concrete blocks to level the surface. The instructions don't explain exactly how the floor kit and the building interface.

In my opinion, if you are building on an uneven surface you would be much better off building your own frame out of 2x10's and 2x12's - it would go together much quicker and be many times stronger than the base kit that you can purchase separately. Once again it would be nice if there were some recommendations from Arrow on how and where to brace the floor kit when it is raised off the ground.

Structural Integrity of Arrow Floor Frame on Pier Foundation?
by: Melanie

How did you end up supporting the Arrow floor frame...? I intend to build a pier foundation (shallow hole, rimmed with pressure-treated 1"x6" boards, lined with landscaping fabric, filled with crushed stone, and topped with cement blocks and 4'x4' pressure-treated lumber [I am very concerned about moisture, especially since the building will be placed in the woods!]). The shed is an Arrow 10'x11' Mid Gable. Because the floor frame will be raised, I am worried that its (flimsy) structure will not be adequately supported (it does appear made to rest solely on a solid, flat surface...). I suppose I could just not use the floor kit, but it is already purchased and not returnable...
