Thickness of slab for shed?

bas157October 14, 2006

I'm debating building a shed on a slab vs buying one that sits on the 4x4 runners.

It will be 12x20 regardless (biggest allowed without zoning board approval).

I don't want to cheap out and have it start cracking on me. Mostly will be lawn equipment and shelving in it, but I do want it to last since I plan on being in this house for a long time!

Not sure if I'd be required to have footers or not?

If I do a slab, what is the minimum thickness it should be?

thanks

I understand the minimum recommended is 3½ inches with a 6 x 6 inch 10 gauge wire mesh.
