2×4 joists, 16″ on centre. Built on patio stones and pressure-treated 4×4’s to lift the shed off the ground.
Built by Our Staff
Our garden sheds are not pre-fab kits. All of our sheds and other structures are custom-built from scratch on your property and built to order. Our team arrives first thing in the morning with raw materials – lumber, siding, windows, doors, and everything needed for construction.
Our staff has significant experience and expertise because this is what we do – all day, every day. When you hire Summit, you can do so with confidence, knowing that it’s our staff that will be building your garden shed or structure, as this allows us to uphold the high quality standards that have earned us our reputation.
Quality and Durability
You only need to read our reviews to know that our garden sheds, and all of our structures, are high-quality and built to withstand Ottawa winters. Everything we build is constructed to comply with the Ontario building code and we hand-pick our building materials to make sure that our clients receive only the best.
Most often, people ask if our shed base is strong, so we decided to put it to the test! We built a base and floor, identical to what we build for each of our sheds, and we parked one of our Chev pick up trucks on it over a long weekend. Here’s a picture of it after 3 days of 5,000 pounds of steel – perfect and standing strong!
