I have an old 8x8 shed built on 4x6 skids which I am looking to replace. The purpose is to make a small workshop for wood working as well as stain-glass work area for my wife. I would like to make it big enough to get a car in there if I needed to.. we don't have a garage at the moment.
I can expand upto 10-12x20 without cutting any surrounding trees. My dilemma is I would do considerable root damage to the trees if I were to pour a slab. I was wondering if there was a method of constructing with metal skids(galvanized-steel, etc.) so it can take the weight of a car (4000lbs) without having to kill about 4-6 trees?
