Concrete foundations for a summer house? The usual advice for concrete is to put a 7-10 cm layer of concrete above 7 cm of compacted hardcore. Having the foundations raised slightly above the ground level encourages water to run off rather than pooling around the base of the summer house.

Can I build a shed next to my Neighbours fence?
Butting your shed right against a garden fence doesn't allow the shed room to 'breathe' and is an invitation for damp to set in. Don't use a shed side as a replacement fence side. Your current neighbour may have no problem with it, a future neighbour may well do.
Can you put a shed on paving slabs?
Uneven ground can lead to warping and contact with soil allows moisture to seep into the wood, leading to damage and rot. Most homeowners, however, can build a shed base with paving slabs. Also, putting in a paver shed foundation isn't as hard to do as you may think.
