    Backyard Getaway: Turn an Outdoor Storage Building into a Man Cave
    There’s an old saying that a man’s home is his castle. Truth be told, it really isn’t. If you’re a married man, it means you share your home with your wife, and most likely your kids.

You may no longer have privacy in your home, so why not gain your own space with a man cave in your backyard? You can convert a portable garage, shed, or other outdoor storage building into your own backyard getaway. All it takes to build a backyard man cave is some creativity and ingenuity.

  6. How to Build a Shed Foundation

    How to Build a Shed Foundation

    When investing in an outdoor storage solution, you want it to last for years to come. That’s why it’s important to maintain your shed to ensure the belongings inside are safe through rough weather. One of the most important things to do is to make sure you have a solid shed foundation. Without one, you are leaving the base, walls and valuables vulnerable.

    Before Creating Your Shed Foundation

    Before you decide what type of material you want to use as the shed foundation, you should consider purchasing a base kit for your Arrow shed. They come in multiple sizes, and allow for a level start. Other Arrow base kit benefits include:
    • Constructed with durable galvanized steel
    • Easy installation
    • Keeps building off the ground
    Pro Tip: Arrow recommends installing a continuous vapor barrier 6 mil. thick between the ground and the base to keep moisture to a minimum.


    Popular Shed Foundation Materials

    How do you know what type of material to use for your shed foundation? It depends on your particular needs. According to Zac’s garden, the most popular foundations are:
    • Gravel- This type of foundation is not only cost effective, it is relatively easy to install. If you are planning on ever moving the finished shed, a gravel foundation is easier to move than other options.
    • Pavers- This choice is for more compact sheds, and are simple to secure at a fraction of the cost of other choices.
    • Wood- This is a simple and durable choice that provides a strong platform for your shed.
    • Concrete- This type of base is an ultra-strong and durable choice. It won’t shift, and acts as a permanent foundation for your shed.
    If you’ve decided to go with a base kit, all you have to do from here is finish up with your chosen flooring which you can purchase separately. If you're investing in an Arrow Storage Products shed, we recommend that you check out our informative section on foundations to help you set your own shed foundation, here. shed foundation

    First Things First

    building a shed One of the biggest mistakes people make is failing to check with their local zoning department before building a shed. Imagine taking all that time to build your new structure, only to learn that you're not up to code. Do yourself a favor and take that added step before beginning construction. It will save you time, money, and frustration. An added bonus to constructing a ShelterLogic shed is that most do not require a building permit. You should also take some time to measure the area where you want your shed, and think about what you’ll be storing inside. If you create a shed that’s too small, your belongings will be crowded and difficult to access. If you construct a shed that’s too big for your yard, you may end up taking space for other leisure items. Doing some simple measurements will help tremendously in the long run.
