Resin (hard plastic) type storage sheds - preparing base?

frankrizzo1856May 28, 2009

So need to get a new shed and trying not to spend the $2k on a wooden shed, eventhough I know it would be great. Home Depot actually has a $1400 resin shed on sale for almost half off, so now contemplating getting that. My question is since it doesn't have a solid wood floor, what should I do to prepare the base for it? (Ground is already level from old shed that use to be there)

Do I get some pressure treated lumber and actually frame out the floor and cover with plywood for the shed to sit on? Do I play larger pavers down in certain areas (what they did for previous shed)? What exactly does everyone suggest?


Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

It doesn't have a plastic floor? I kinda thought the plastic sheds had floors included?

I would probably frame out the PT floor. Pavers I think would be more likely to allow moisture/bugs/etc into the shed.
