Tips and tricks for outdoor structures

Outdoor structures on a home’s property provide storage, recreational value and, in the case of fences, protection. Just as the main house requires a sound foundation, so do the outbuildings and other structures like decks, sheds and garages; some small sheds, however, need only concrete blocks or a timber sleeper foundation. Garages are required by law to have traditional concrete foundations as their structures carry more weight. In many areas, building codes require decks over a certain height to have more than one beam. Homeowners can save money and material wastage by building decks to correspond with standard timber lengths.
