    Default How to fasten shed floor to concrete column footing?

    Shed floor to concrete column footing?

    Hello TOH board!

    I am putting in a 5 corner shed that is 10'x10'. I've decided to use 2x6's for the floor and have the floor rest on concrete footings set 4' in the ground. There are 8 footings. My question is, how should I fasten the floor to the concrete for each of the points?

    Thank you.

    Wet set a Simpson post base into the top of the column. If the column has already been poured, then drill and anchor a Simpson post base with an expansion bolt.

    You have a unique plan. How are you going to roof it?

    I don't think this is too unique as it's a purchased plan. Everything other than the floor is pre-cut. The roof is a five sided roof (no gable).

    Thank you for your suggestion. I can see that work for column #2, 5 & 8. For the corners, would I bend down one of the plates ?
