I have tried Pinterest and some other web sites, but can't find plans that include a concrete base for my shed. All the one's if have seen show a wood foundation on skids. I need to know how to put up walls on the concrete.

    my shed is on concrete...there are special fasteners. concrete anchor kits are available from the worlds largest on line retailer.

    btw...know where your lot line is....and city codes - check and see if you need a building permit, and inspections for the slab and structure. it may also affect your property value.

    ya even for a shed....my shed is an ancient metal thing. It's on concrete and anchored down if I were to replace it...put a new one on the concrete I woul not be able to anchor it. The newer city code says I would have to put new concrete..10 feet off the lot line, not 4.

    yup. My shed is grandfathered in to the new city code. if ther was no shed...and I wanted one..I would have to put it 10 feet from property line ...the existing shed is 4 ft. From the line. I can put a shed on the old concrete ...but I would not be able to anchor it down.

    every town has has different codes...it would be a shame to build the shed only to be told you have to take it down...

    yup..you should... I have a shed on a concrete slab and fastened down. It's 4 feet off the property line. I can't put a replacement on that same slab and anchor it. New code states the shed would have to be moved 10 feet from property line.
