Every man should have owned at least one garden shed in his life time anand at the age of 64 I am taking the plunge and I must admit to feeling a childish excitement in anticipation. Now I know that there is more to just going down to your local shed supplier, selecting the shed of your choice, having it delivered and erected and then filling it with all the junk , future useful items. I need to have a firm base for said shed, I propose having paving slabs laid, which is where I have run into a slight conundrum, sheds it seems are measured in imperial, my shed will be 6' x 4' but simple paving slabs are metric and are 600mm x 600mm. So my questions are will 6 slabs be an ample base for the above sized shed? How should the slabs be laid as the area is currently grassed? What about lighting, I cannot run a cable across so what portable lamp or will I really not need one? Anything else I heed to consider?
