Hi,

I'm looking to put a long & thin shed in an unused area between the gable end of my house and the half metre high boundary wall. I'd have one side flush to the house (like a lean-to) and probably bolted to it vertically. The other side side I would set in a little from the boundary so that I can put a fully clad shed wall all the way to the ground.

Is is feasible to suspend the shed base from the two walls by bolting parallel beams to the opposing walls a bit like some decks are done? Or should I just spend the extra time and effort to put in (7m x 1.3m of) concrete or paving?

Thanks for your thoughts!

I'm not quite clear why you wish to suspend the shed but yes it's feasible . Personally I'd put legs under the bearers as opposed to relying just on bolts . That's not that the bolts wouldn't be man enough , they probably would but if I can go belt and braces I tend to. Must be the pessimist in me :lol:

I guess if I'm being honest it's mainly laziness. The space is pretty confined and closed off at one end and so any concrete levelling would have to be done by perching on or leaning over the boundary wall. I also thought about using some kind of joist hanger mounted so that the joists ran perpendicular to the wall but this seems like it needs a lot more places for things to line/level-up.

I like the idea of legs under the bearers though and getting in a few pads of concrete for those seems a bit more tractable than a full sized base.

Cheers.

Ah makes it a bit more clear . I must admit I was envisaging the shed suspended above the height of that boundary wall with half a metre of space underneath. Make a decent storage place that space would.
