for plenty of info. the pre-built kit is probably pretty basic.
if you look over the pop mech SuperShed design/plans
you may be able to improve your construction.
I built a small shed from scratch a few years back.To hold it up I
used four cement footings I guess you would call them.The were
actually made for decks, being a cement block with an opening the size
to fit a 4x4. I put a threaded bar into the 4x4 opening and filled the
hole with cement. Drilled a hole through the bottom of the shed frame
and bolted it onto the block.
Don't it come with instructions? If not, take it back and build one
from scratch. You already paid double what the materials would cost
if you cut them yourself, but you are paying all that extra money for
the instructions and some guy that earns minimum wage to cut those
boards all day long. Be prepared to have both missing and extra
parts, those minimum wage workers are usually drunk or on crack
cocaine, so you cant expect them to count the parts.
By the way, do you own a hammer and screwdriver? You'll need both.
You might also want to take a course at a local technical college to
learn how to pound nails and turn screws. It takes a lot of skill to
do those things. Or, just hire some local crackhead druggie homeboy,
pay him minimum wage, and give him lots of beer. He'll build it for
you and you can watch tv while he does all the work for you.
