During a recent move, I took down my prefab steel shed and brought it to the new house. In our old place, the platform the shed was built on was flimsy and placed directly on the ground. Here, I wanted something sturdier and more weatherproof, so I put it up on piers, level, plumb, and square.
It was also 20" off the ground.
This made it hard to get in and out of the shed, so I knew I'd have to build steps. This is the design process I went through. Total cost for this project was $0. I used lumber salvaged from pallets and building site refuse, and hardware left over from building the shed platform.
I'm entering this into the Instructables Design Competition
