How ( how not) to build a base for your garden building

This base had a lump of concrete poured on top of it which has made it completely uneven, (probably due to a sloppy builder who couldn't be bothered to dispose of the excess concrete). Note: The floor joists of a building need to sit directly on top of the concrete and haven’t a hope of being flat on a base like this. Always ensure you use a spirit level to check that your base is completely ...

20/11/2020  Q: Tim, I’m flummoxed. I’m about to build a large detached garage. The plans call for a 10-inch-thick by 20-inch-wide poured concrete footing with two 1/2-inch steel bars that run continuously in the concrete.
