Shed foundation on sloping yard

by Nilesh
(Bartlett IL)

Hi, I am trying to build a 10' x 10' Gable shed on my rear yard which has a slope. Looking at the attached diagram, if ABCD is my shed with A as highest point in the yard then B is 11" deep, C is 19" deep and D is 22" inch deep

I plan to create 9 support points, dig the grade, put gravel and place 4" * 8" * 12" solid cement blocks (stacked as needed) to cover the slope.

I would then run 3No. 4" * 4" * 10' on the support points and place the floor frame of the shed on these runners and nail the runners and floor frame.

I might use some masonry caulk between runners and cement block to ensure they won't skid.

Do you think this will work?

Screw in anchors
by: Lindsay

You can utilize some screw in anchors into the ground to stabilize the pillars. These come in various sizes and can be found in home supply stores. They are mainly used to hold down mobile homes. The smaller sizes would be great for your application.
