How to Build a Shed Ramp

by Mark
3 Materials
My garage was starting to get cramped so I decided I needed a shed for the lawn/garden equipment.
I thought about building one but bailed and decided to purchase a 10' x 14' shed with 6' wide doors from the nearby Amish community.
To not be a total slacker, I decided I could at least build the foundation and ramp.
I've never built a ramp so I did a little research online and found that there are an abundance of styles, both good and bad.
Anyway, this is my attempt at ramp design.
Hope someone finds it useful

    I live in the Northwest where it rains constantly and also get snow. The wood is on the dirt. Won't it rot ?

    As long as you use good quality treated lumber, it should be fine. Make sure the area drains so you don't have standing water for extended periods
