Sometimes you have to put the wood work aside to take care of other stuff around the place. I’ve noticed online quite a few people wondering if you can raise or move a shed. Here’s living proof of how quick and easy it is. Normally I have one of my several gardens next to the shed as well but this year I had to put it off because the shed was sinking into the ground and being taken over by ground hogs. I had to raise it 4”. The shed is 10×20. Empty I figured it to be about 2000 lbs. So a 3 ton jack should lift it easy. I just had to dig under it enough to lay a 2×12 down as a base and set the jack on it.
As you can see here the shed was raised about 5” The shed was originally setting on 4×12 concrete blocks. I had to straighten and level the blocks. Lots more digging.
I sat the shed down on some treated leftover 4×6 pieces from my pole barn and repeated the same thing on the other side.
In the pic to the right on the back you can see the runners that go up the middle of the building. This meant the floor had to come up. I took out a 2 ft. wide strip up the center.
Some of the treasures I found.
And that’s pretty much it. Fill the holes and fill the shed back up. It took most the day and now I can put that late garden in on the side.
