1. Sturdy Handal Foundation
If you build a smaller storage warehouse (usually less than 200 square feet) then the wooden slip foundation is sufficient. To keep the area under dry warehouses, the pebbles will give a stable flat surface for built and drained water as well. Make sure the timbres used for slip foundations harga blockboard are treated for ground contacts otherwise they will experience decay.
For larger warehouses (greater than 200 square feet) concrete plate foundation should be used. Platform layers require a little more work to be installed but will hold larger buildings safely in place. If you put a cement slab foundation for the first time having someone who has experience doing this would be a great idea. Smoothing and leveling slabs can be a tricky proposition.
2. Lift the Floor
The last thing you want in your warehouse is mold and mildew. To prevent this from going up the floor at least 6 inches above the ground. Keeping the floor at this height will protect against rotting frames and floor and window warping.
Leave enough space around the warehouse so you can walk easily around it. You will be glad to do when you have to paint or make improvements. Also let the sun shine in the shed to keep it dry.
3. Do not Skimp on Floor Framing and Decking Materials
Under no circumstances buy the cheapest class of wood. It will not hold up against those elements for a long time and you will end up with a shanty shack in your backyard. Floor framing and plywood decks actually have to be top-notch. The floor frame should be made of 2X6 or 2X8 pressure treated with wood. For floor wear ¾ inch plywood exterior grade. Anything thinner will cause it to bounce on the floor. If you store heavy equipment such as grass tractors or have heavy woodworking machines heavyweight plywood will be able to support these items.
4. Maintain Maintenance to Minimum
You want to do a little work to keep the cage as much as possible so use some kind of PVC material available. You can use PVC material for trim and fascia boards. Also available for low maintenance options are vinyl or aluminum windows, faux-slate shingle roofs, fiber glass doors and composite decking for steps.
5. Making Large Doors and Many Windows
Install double doors in your warehouse. Whether you use it as a warehouse or as a workshop you will be glad you entered the double doors. It is advisable to put a double door on one of the long sidewalls walls as this will allow access to both sides and the back of the warehouse as well. If you use the warehouse as a workshop, I personally will have a door at one end and store a long wall for other uses.
