Slab shed base advice

Post by Mattjones12291 »

Hi guys

I'm new to the forum and very much a DIY novice so please go easy ha ha.

Iv recently bought a new house with my wife and money is now a bit tight so I'm having a go at laying my own 10x8 slab shed base.

Any hints on where to save money etc and what il need to do it? How many slabs itl take etc.

Thanks a lot

Simple idea here, of course standard footpath type council paving slabs are 900x600mm or 600x600mm and these are often sold by e-bay in new condition and on gumtree in used condition, the larger size needs 2 persons to lift, though they can just about be walked by one. Of course 600x600 divides better into your 10'x8' unless you want to cover an area for a step. ... slab-base/
