Holes for the Legs

Image of the holes for legs
As you’re constructing your garden building on legs you’ll need to dig xx holes around xx deep. To make sure the holes are in the correct place it’s a good idea to make the base frame first.

Holes for the Legs

Now the frame is made you can put it in place, rest it on the ground and mark out the position of the holes for the legs. You can mark these by placing a stick in the ground, using spray paint or digging a small starter hole. Once the markers are in place you can move the base frame to one side and start digging, if you’ve got a post hole digger you can leave it in place as you’ll be able to dig around it.

The holes can be a little bigger than needed so you can fine-tune the leg position but if it’s too big you’ll end up using more post concrete.

Once the holes are dug, put in the legs and make sure they’re all roughly the same depth (around xx deep), then move the frame back into place.

Next, you’ll need to get the frame level. You can do this by either resting it on bricks or timber so one leg is the correct height and the frame is roughly level.

Now you can clamp the legs to the frame, make sure they’re straight with a spirit level and fill the hole with water, then pour in a bag of post concrete.

When all of the legs are set in the concrete you can screw the first leg to the frame at the correct high using x x screws per leg. Next, use your spirit level to make sure the frame is level and screw in the next leg. Repeat this until all of the legs are screwed to the frame

The Frame

Frame with drill measurements
To start the base frame, you’ll need A0 & A6. Mark both lengths at the same time at 678mm, 1235mm.

Start by screwing the two end rafters to xx using XX screws. You can then check the diagonal measurements and move the frame so they’re both xx.
Then attach the remaining rafters followed by the noggins (xx). A good tip is to use the noggins as a guide on each end to get the spacing to match.
It might be easier to attach the noggins as you add each rafter so that you have more space for the drill.

Floor Insulation

To insulate the floor you’ll need to add rails to hold the insulation in place. Use xx and screw them in place along each side of the rafters.
Push the insulation panels in place. It’s best to start from the middle so you don’t have to step on it as it will be fragile.

Floor OSB

Lay the OSB boards onto the frame and screw in place one by one using 50mm screws roughly every 300-400mm
