Poromsed way bac in August when I moved the shed to post some pictures and aplologize for bein so late.
There is not a level place on the whole acreage and I had no way to level a spot. So set 4x4 posts and put 2X4 s ont top to level the shed.
That put it level 1 1/2 ft above frade on the east and 2 ft above grade on the west. An unplanned benefit of setting it up this high is I can drive the tractor in the shed without having to duck the door frame. Oh The Uprights for the door fram3 are in the ground 3 ft. along with all posts.

I've been putting dirt inside to level the floor using the Ford 1500 3 point dirt scoop and leveling with a blade.

looks like a nice shed,and you probably saved a lot of money by moving yours and setting it up compared to buying or building a new one.

Yes this !2 X !8 shed was given to me for moving it off a property. We put it on a 16 ft trailer and moved 3 miles with a 1500 Chevy.
It needs paint and I have yet to build the doors. Here is a view of the west side It makes good shelter for the tractor and I'll be moving the new tiller in now that the floor is relatively level. I'll be staying with the dirt floor through the winter.

The only thing better than a new tractor shed is a new tractor to put in it. You got both! What a great day! Looks good and I love that Ford!

Yes I've got very little in this so far. With the exception of the 4X4 Posts everything used has been recycled materials I'll have to buy some hinges and some more bolts for the doors but it's sure a budget project. I think lumber and fuel to move I have under $100 in this. That's not counting the fuel used in the tractor to move dirt for filler, but with all the other projects I;ve done with the tractor, I could not guess how much of it went in the shed?
