I suggest digging down about 6 inches, an area about a foot larger all
around than the shed. Then fill that with crushed gravel. Pack it down one

Here in the Vegas area desert, I have two metal sheds. For each, I made
timber sills from salvaged 4x4 fence posts to which the shed walls are
fastened. Then I installed an interior floor using the 12x12 inch concrete
paver blocks that the local home supply stores sell around here. The sheds
are in a walled corner so I don't worry about wind moving these pretty light
structures. Not a fancy solution but they've done the job for 20 years.
Don't know if this would fit the design of your shed.
