For homeowners who are planning a shed project, starting with a solid shed floor is an absolute must. Without a sturdy floor, the shed itself will lack the overall strength and support that is necessary to be safe and long lasting.

  1. To square any wall or deck all you need to do is string line one side preferably the longest side then pull your tape from corner to corner making sure the long side does not move.  The 4×4 and Sono tubes are an not necessary a 4 x4 with a cement pad at the bottom of the hole, backfilled with pea gravel is sufficient then through bolt into joists or better yet use timberlocks The blocking you installed is excessive as well you only need one row of blocking in a 12′ span.  For all the extra lumber you used the 4x4s and blocking you could of used 2×8’s if you were worried about floor bounce.  Also I would’ve used tongue and grove plywood and not change direction of the plywood.  Plywood has its strength the 8′ way not the 4′ way.  While this is your shed and you can build it the way you want.  I wouldn’t advise people to build one using this method.

    1. You are right about everything, except I would use the tubes dug 48″ down. I live in the North and the ground heavs up in areas the shed would be skewed when this hapens. I have a 34′ x 16′ deck with my footings dug 48″, cement tubes filled. When we get a cold winter the deck will pick up in some corners up to 4″. I know dig 54″ .

    1. Actually there are some valid reasons why someone would leave a “thumbs down”. First of all the floor joists didn’t need hangers. They’ll rest just fine on the 4×4’s. Second he did not need all of those blocks between the joists. He could have put just one row down the middle. Lastly the second layer of plywood on top of the 3/4 was ridiculous overbuild. People come to YouTube to educate themselves and save time when they actually build, not how to waste time by adding unnecessary material.

  2. Excellent Video. You’re a really good instructor and communicator. It’s a shame that some who’ve responded with what seems to be fairly good advice don’t know how to communicate it without being adversarial. Really good job. Thanks for posting.
