Capstone cinder block floor/foundation for shed---I'm looking all over the net and can't find where anyone is using 4"x8"x16" cinder blocks for a foundation of floor for a storage shed. What is wrong with this method? It gets the floor of the shed up higher than pavers, allows for greater weight load per square foot than a plywood floor, drainage if water is spilled on the floor, and is less expensive than building a raised wooden floor that can hold heavy storage. Would love to hear from y'all about this, as I'm about to get underway with construction. Thanks!

Hello Handyman web site, can you check your links to stop sending me to Samsung adds on your sites and actually show me the Hardware parts I need to build the sliding door you have posted on your site.

What do I use to keep squirrels or whatever animal from eating the wood?
Built a shed and a lot of the corners up in the roof area are being nibbled on!

Wow, this looks like so much work to do it this way. I considered following shed plans and then found wood shed kits are available pre-cut. I shopped around and found the best price was at http://www.shedsforlessdirect.com/ and they had free shipping. It literally took me and my dad a day and a half from start to finish to make our shed. If we would have done everything ourselves I was estimating three weekends. If you can spare a few extra bucks it is well worth it to just get a shed kit instead. Good luck guys!
