Hi all

Novice here planning to build my own shed and mulling over how to construct it.

I will be laying a 4’ concrete base but as the proximity to my boundary wall limits the overall height, I was toying with the idea of using the base as a floor by laying a layer of engineering bricks and a DPC and attaching the walls directly to them (ie no timber subfloor, maximising the internal height).

I’ve seen it done but it doesn’t seem to be a very common route.

Other than the obvious issue with cold, can anyone give me any ideas of the pros & cons of such a construction?

Many thanks
BK

Lay some visqueen (1200) gauge polythene prior to the slab, engineering bricks then a dpc before sitting the frame on.
