shed without a base; rain proof

Post by BLAKEVINE on Fri Feb 07, 2014 9:58 am

Unlike in Angleterre, our new abri came without a base so with the help of a local man and Batiland Farges we've got a substantial concrete base and it sits perfectly on it.........until the driving rain came. With the amount of rain and wind we have had, water has crept in under the sides and I was just contemplating what to do about it. Should I leave it as it is or should I try and fill the gap somehow with something and, if so, what? My thoughts range from an additional strip of wood around the base on the inside (but then would it be able to breathe properly) to bridging the gap with mouse.....it is water tight and plumbers use it.....and then I could cut off the excess.....Any suggestions please ? Thanks !

Hmm, you'll probably need quite a few of them but I see where you're coming from.
