Site Preparation

*Please Note: Site preparation refers to the site in which you will place the complete building, it does not give specifications on the floor of your structure. Please call if you are looking for measurements for your building to have a concrete floor.

All preparatory work of the site is the responsibility of the property owner. Whatever surface you choose to place your playhouse on, that surface should extend out approximately 1’ wider on all sides of your structure. Most importantly, be sure you have a level surface for your building.


There are several ways to prepare your site including the following:

Crushed Stone- We recommend using crushed stone (3/4" clean) approximately 4-5" deep. We also advise that you have 12" of stone around the perimeter of the outbuilding to control weeds and keep moisture away from the building. Before installing the stone, you can either dig out 4" of soil and simply make the stone ground level, or you can make a frame with 4"x4"s or landscape timbers and then fill flush to the top with stone.

Concrete Pad- Another option would be to have a concrete pad installed. If you are going to have a concrete pad installed, remember to keep your pad as close to ground level as possible. We recommend that you make the pad 12’’ wider on each side of the building.

Using crushed stone or a concrete pad will increase the longevity of your building/ playhouse. Having the proper site allows needed air flow, which will keep your building/playhouse looking great for years to come!

Permits: If it is necessary to obtain a building permit or cross a neighboring property, it is the buyer’s responsibility to obtain a neighbor’s permission of the necessary permit prior to delivery.

Customer is responsible for all site prep and permits

Outdoor canopies have many purposes. They are pleasing to the eye, offer shelter in the rain, and provide a shaded area on sunny days. Canopies can also be used as a parking space not only for cars, but also bigger vehicles, such as trucks, boats, etc. You can also host parties under the shade of the canopy so that the guests can enjoy the party without getting a sun burn. Here are some points you should consider when buying an outdoor canopy for your property:

1. Size: You should always choose the canopies for your property based on the size of property. The size of the canopy shouldn’t be so big that it overshadows other parts of the property. Most common sizes for canopies include 10’x10′ and 12’x12′, although there are larger and smaller sizes available.

2. Frame Material: The frame of the canopy is most commonly made from steel and aluminum. While steel is heavier, stronger and helpful against strong winds, it can corrode. Aluminum on the other hand is lighter and easier to set up, but can bend easier than steel.

3. Tent Material: The tent of a canopy protects the users from severe weather conditions. Most commonly water resistant polyester is used, which is durable and provides protection from rain. Some canopies are also made from polyester with vinyl coating which provides more protection against UV rays.

4. Type: There are many types of outdoor canopies available in the market, such as Party Canopies, Large Canopies, Beach Canopies, Enclosed Canopies and more. Which type of canopy you should get depends on your purpose of use and need.

5. Features: There are many other features that a canopy can encompass such as Sidewalls, Custom graphics, Carrying cases and many more. You should choose a canopy that has the features that you want in it. If you want to buy an outdoor canopy, check out the extensive collection at Storage Sheds Outlet.
