After 10 years, the shed needed some work.
|Our shed had a noticeable tilt after ten years. |
In the foreground, the pot sits on the top of the septic holding
tank and the septic drainage field mound is to the left.
These days the shed is heavily used for tools, pots, and other gardening supplies. But the oak tree to its left had grown and had tilted the whole shed a few degrees, and on the right, there were large roots also touching the bottom of the shed.
At first, we thought we would have to move it a foot or two to the right, but after clearing out the leaves and sticks from under the shed, we decided to just raise it in place. We know that this is not a permanent solution because the trees' roots will continue to grow.
