    I do like the slimline sheds, but they are mostly for up against the house right? I am preparing for a shed that will be free standing on a concrete slab. I am thinking I need to look into some of your other recommendations for larger sheds, right? I am almost there. Thinking I need to get the shed up before finishing the fence. However, these are very nice, and would be great for the side of the house for storage. I love your site 🙂

      Hi Matt’s Mom,

      Thanks for calling in to read about these various slimline garden sheds.

      Their most popular stance and position is to stand against a house wall, you are right. Although it’s recommended to anchor them down into the substrate below, wind resistance-wise and situated this way will increase stability many times.

      This style of shed suits where space is rather tight like down the side of a house or positioned on a patio plot however many people are restricted in size due to planning laws nowadays, especially over in America. The UK isn’t as bad as some of the states in the USA.

      A perfectly level concrete slab is the best way to go, making sure the shed won’t be stood in a floodplain, it’s a good idea to raise the foundations if there are doubts. No matter what type of composition is preferred they will all leak if immersed, wood, metal and resin.
