Creating a Concrete Post Base

Shed with concrete post base

We often suggest that customers use Concrete Fence Posts as a base for their new shed.

The are ideal because...

  • They are super strong and long lasting
  • They are very easy to lay
  • Can be dug into ground or laid on top
  • Cheaper than a slab base
  • Raises the shed up off the floor and out of rainwater

Posts can be purchased from our sister site Bentinck Fencing

Here is a short guide to help you understand which size posts you will require

Example - 7 x 5 Apex Shed

The floor runners on our sheds always run the LONGEST length. So for a 7 x 5 shed the floor would look like this from underneath

Therefore, you will need 5' Concrete posts so that they run the opposite way to our floor runners, as seen in this diagram (seen from underneath)

So in conclusion, for a 7' x 5' shed, you'll need: 4 x 5' concrete fence posts @ £7.50 each = £30.00

A very cheap, sturdy, long-lasting base.
