A decade or so ago, I built a storage shed. The shed is 16'x24'. When I
built the shed it was only intended for storage. Over the years I have
slowly converted the shed into a small woodworking shop.
The floor, two layers of treated 3/4" plywood, glued and nailed to 2x6
joists, set on concrete blocks. Over the years, the floor has become uneven
and almost impossible to roll my larger tools around on.
I need some opinions. What would be the best, least expensive and least
labor intensive method of obtaining a reasonably flat floor.
By the way, being located in Texas, with all the scorpions, black widows and
brown recluse spiders, not to mention a whole assortment of snakes; I would
just as soon not entertain the notion of crawling under the shed.
Providing the subfloor is still sound, do as Mike suggest and, after using
the same leveling compound the hardware floor guys use to install hardwood
flooring over second story subfloor, install the flooring of your choice on
top of that.
Just don't do it over rot, or you'll be doing it again in short order.
Sorry, your problem is the concrete block base. I'll bet they've sunk
into the ground and are giving you the unevenness. I'd take the floor
up-you can probably reuse the plywood-and even up the "foundation".
