Slab Size Problems
I've just received my shed. I've previously laid a concrete plinth to the size of the shed. Once I looked at the assembly instructions it says slab to be at least 75mm larger than shed. I'm left with a slab that's too small to build the shed on and the shed sitting getting rained on as I try and figure a way of extending the slab. I'm seriously unhappy. This info should have been on this page.

Can the doors be placed at the short side ?
I am looking for a workshop circa 7m x 4m. However the doors need to be at the end of the building. I note that this item suggests multiple possible configurations for the doors and windows. Is the short end one of these options ?
Could you tell me what foundation is recommended?
I'm guessing a concrete slab is required, what thickness of slab is needed?
Hello, Yes a concrete base is recommended for the Mammoth.
It should be 3830mm wide x7280mm long (this allows for 50mm bigger in each direction).
The depth should be at least 75mm deep. This is based on firm ground if your ground . We recommend that you seek advice from a local builder.
The flatter you can get your base the better.
