    Proper pool shed foundation

    I am plannig to purchase a shed for my backyard (to store all pool related stuff like chairs, floats, etc). It will be about 10 x 16 or 12 x 16 or maybe bigger if once we get there we decide on a larger one. My question is what type of base should I use? Some places suggest gravel (or rocks). I would have thought concerete but that seems to be discouraged.

    Any thoughts.

    call me old fashioned, but concrete slab is the most stable. Not difficult to pour yourself, just prep the area first and then re-bar and forms before the pour.
