How to Prepare Your Gravel Shed Pad

We recommend a Gravel Pad for Portable Sheds

Storage Shed Pads and Garage Gravel Pad Preparation

Preparing for your storage shed from Sheds Unlimited is an important procedure. We recommend placing your shed on a gravel storage shed pad as outlined below. Please follow the storage shed pad or car garage pad instructions as outlined. On larger two, three of four car garages and two-story buildings we provide directions on preparing a concrete pad. As always, feel free to call us at 717-442-9055 or email us if you have any further questions.

SHEDS UNLIMITED is NOT responsible for structural problems if one fails to follow the instructions. Failure to follow instructions will VOID the Sheds Unlimited WARRANTY and may incur extra delivery charges!

Follow These Instructions For Storage Shed Pad Preparation with a Gravel Pad

1. Measure the Space for your Building

Please ensure that our “MULE” can bring the shed fully assembled into your backyard (if the area is tight, please request a “built on site” shed)

2. Build a Perimeter for Your Storage Shed

Build a 4″x4″, 4″x6″ or 6″x6″ pressure treated perimeter. The STONE AREA of your SHED PAD should be at least ONE FOOT WIDER and ONE FOOT LONGER than the actual size of the building. See Photos Below. 

3. Fill in With Stone

Fill the area inside the frame with 4-6 inches of 3/4 INCH CRUSHED STONE – DO NOT USE RIVER BEAD STONE or a SMOOTH ROUNDED STONE!!

4. Check for Level

Please MAKE SURE that the pad is PERFECTLY LEVEL and SQUARE

I worked with Sheds-unlimited over the phone. They explained to me how to prep the site. Took about 1 day to level the ground build the base and add the stone.
The Shed showed up as promised in about 20 minutes it was off the truck and in place. What I like the best is everyone knows what they are doing at Sheds-unlimited no messing around or problems. Price was excellent and shed is extremely well built.

We are so happy with our tiny cabin from Sheds Unlimited. From our first inquiry after viewing their web site to the order process and the delivery, they were outstanding. Ben was amazing as he worked with us to turn a 14 x 24 ft shed into a small rustic cabin for our land in the mountains. Being in customer service, I really appreciated how he took care of us. We never felt rushed when we met with him to go over ideas and plans, and phone calls and emails were returned promptly. We never heard the word no; he said yes they can do that or how about this way? We warned Ben and Dave (who scheduled the delivery) that it would be a difficult delivery with tight turns and steep hills, but they said no problem. Nate delivered our cabin and worked through some very tight spots. As expected, there was damage to the back side of the cabin. Dave worked with us to schedule one of their carpenters to repair all the damages. And we were 4 hours away! He sent Dan who worked very hard in the heat to repair the damage and it looks as good as new. Quality construction, outstanding customer service and follow up repairs makes this a highly reputable company. We would highly recommend Sheds Unlimited if you are planning on building a shed or finishing it into a cabin or back yard retreat!

A and T Garcia from West Virginia

We were very pleased with the timely manner in which our shed was delivered and the pleasent and courteous driver who delivered it. I would recommend sheds unlimited to anyone who is buying a shed.

There is good service and there is GREAT service. Good business and GREAT business. After lots of painful research and onsite shed company visits, I stumbled across Sheds Unlimited. Boy did I/we luck-out because they are GREAT/GREAT! From David G. in the sales to Austin B. in the delivery, everyone was fantastic to work with. We live 100s of miles away and we never felt nervous giving the money down to get the project started. Brand new home, and the beautifully crafted Dutch Barn is PERFECT. the colors and style match impeccably. I will buy from them again when needed and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them without ANY reservations!

Rich Rivera from North borough MA

We are very pleased with the process. The shed is well built. The purchase and delivery was outstanding. Price was competitive as well.

The Shed is a good quality. everything went very smooth with everybody at Sheds Unlimited. The staff was always friendly and answered my questions very quickly. The delivery guy was great, did a great job helping in leveling the shed out. I highly recommend buying a shed from you guys.

Steve from Howell NJ

Bought a garage, wife picked colors, we couldn't be happier! The construction is top notch, solid, and exactly as described by John. Delivered earlier than promised, the mule is amazing, the driver was cool, calm and skilled. I am an electrician and I researched garages, online and in person for a month, this was the best built and best priced option. John, Ivan, and everyone else we spoke with were friendly and knowledgeable. I would and will recommend this company to everyone who asks. Thank you for a quality product.

Vinny Passantino from Wading River, New York

Purchased in-stock shed for almost $1,100 cheaper then local guy. The delivery guy was awesome... did a great job navigating the shed to the back yard with limited space. He actually fix a small piece of shingle that struck a tree branch. I didn't even notice. That tells you a lot about Sheds Unlimited. 5 stars, don't look elsewhere!

Mark from York, PA

I was worried that they would not be able to put the shed where i needed it. Not only did it get there, but it was put there in short order. This company has delivered a quality product on time, with professional results. I would recommend them to anyone.
That again.
