Building a store can be both a big and a small project, depending on what it should look like. The ground anchoring also plays a role in how complicated the project becomes. Many people are used to using concrete plinths for anchoring, which requires several hours of digging. With our help, however, you can build storage without digging.
By anchoring your storage with our ground screw, you can build storage completely without a terminal block. This way you do not have to worry about digging, casting and soldering. Building storage with earth anchors is also very easy for you because you do not have to mount them yourself, we come out to you and both pre-drill and mount the ground screw.
RULES FOR BUILDING STORES
There are some rules to keep in mind when building storage with a ground screw. Warehouse buildings of up to 30 square meters, also called Attefallshus, usually do not need a building permit. However, some criteria must be met, which include the distance to the plot boundary and the height of the storage. We recommend that you always check with the municipality where you live to be on the safe side.
DIFFERENT TYPES OF STORAGE
When you are going to build a storage room, you can either choose to build it from scratch, or you can buy a prefabricated storage room, shed or Attefallshus. What you choose depends on how much work you want to put into the construction project. You have the opportunity to build all storage without a terminal block thanks to our earth anchors. We offer ground screws that fit all types of constructions. You usually build a storage room on a floor or a patio-like foundation. The general advice that applies says that these should have one terminal per two meters. Our beam screws fit perfectly there, and you do not have to take a single sod.
Prefabricated storage may have special fasteners that make it better to use our adapter screws. If you are just going to build a simpler storage room at ground level, we have post screws that handle the work gallantly. Regardless of the type of storage building you choose, you have many opportunities to build storage without casting plinths.
BENEFITS OF BUILDING STORAGE WITHOUT PLINT OR MOLDED FOUNDATION
Building with plinths or a cast foundation is time consuming and laborious. You have to dig down the plinths, cast and solder, something that takes several hours. Even if you choose pre-cast concrete plinths, you must dig them down and make sure that they end up straight and in plumb. Not only is it time consuming but it is also stressful for the body. A concrete plinth is also very heavy. It is also not so environmentally friendly because a lot of carbon dioxide is emitted during production.
Casting a foundation is also something that takes time and requires digging. The result should be uneven and it is also an expensive alternative. You can also not build on both cast foundation and plinth foundation directly, but you have to wait for them to dry or settle. If you instead choose to build the storage room with ground screws, you can start your construction project immediately after installation.
Another advantage of building storage without a terminal block is that you can do it all year round, at least with Sluta Gräv’s ground screw. We also mount them in frost. This means that you can start construction in the winter to have the storage ready by the spring. If you live in a place where the ground is very rocky or muddy, it can also be difficult to dig down plinths in a good and stable way. But we can screw down our ground screws even in difficult terrain and surfaces that are not suitable for plinths.
WHICH STORAGE SUITS YOU AND YOUR GARDEN?
How much storage you want depends partly on the size of your garden, and partly on whether you want to apply for a building permit or not. You should of course have space for everything you need to store. A storage building of 30 square meters or less is usually sufficient. Then you do not need a building permit either, unless you follow the other rules.
It is also important that the construction does not take up your entire garden, there must be room for garden furniture, flower beds and other things as well. A storage room can be used for so many different things, such as storing bicycles, garden tools and summer toys for the children. Regardless of what it is to be used for, it is important that it is stable and that it is firmly anchored in the ground. You do not want to risk it overturning during a storm.
HOW TO PLAN YOUR STORAGE
We recommend that you anchor your storage with a ground screw from us at Sluta Gräv. They are much easier to use a concrete plinth and more stable than ground anchors and pole shoes you find in hardware stores. When you use our ground screws, you plan your work just as usual, you decide what dimensions you should have, make a drawing and calculate how much material you will need.
When you then go to the department store to buy the material, you ignore buying terminals or other anchoring material. After the purchases, contact us at Sluta Gräv to discuss your project, get a price quote and book an appointment for installation. An advantage when you use a ground screw from us is that you do not have to carry out the anchoring work yourself. We measure where the screws are to be placed, drill holes and assemble the screws for you. You can then start building directly on the ground screws.
DON’T WORRY ABOUT THE SOIL IMPACT
If you build a store with a ground screw and then want to demolish or move it, it is possible to do so when you build with a ground screw. This also makes it optimal for you who live in a tenancy, as it is easy to restore the garden afterwards. In addition, it is possible to reuse the ground screws, which makes them both affordable and environmentally friendly.
As you can see, there are only benefits to building storage without a terminal block. If you have previously built a wooden deck or a terrace with concrete plinths, you are well aware of what work it requires. With ground screws from Sluta Gräv, digging is just a memory and you also avoid destroying the garden with large holes or heavy machines.
Ground screws are durable, environmentally friendly and affordable when building storage. We offer assembly all over Sweden and are able to anchor your storage regardless of terrain. It is easy to get a stable storage with Sluta Gräv’s ground screw.
