« Part 2: 4"-5" depth dug out. Lessons learned Part 3 of 6'x12' lean-too shed series Part 4: wall framing completed. I need new arms... »

Good progress this weekend. blocks were all leveled, followed by the structure being leveled and squared. Slapped in the flooring. Very stout and stable. And I’m just using 6 blocks at 6’ each. Was considering adding 3 more down the middle but maybe not. First things first….fix my wheelbarrow! Had air wheel which always went flat. Swapped to all rubber one…soooooo much better! The gravel retail place told me 6’x12’x4” comes to about 1 ton of gravel.

Looks pretty good. Make sure you do the best you can to keep moisture from getting up under that OSB or it’ll rot in a few years. Also I think you mean “floor joists” not rafters. Bet your excited to get this thing up and progress being made. Keep up the good work!
