Hi and welcome!

You mean like this?

Mine just sits on bricks on bitys of paving slabs with some bits of pool vinyl between the wood and the bricks.

This is how I built my Japanese tea-house...alright.. "Tea-shed," in 1987.


It's still going strong, with no rot, (recent photo) though I did renew the roofing felt ten years ago.

The most important point is to get it clear of the ground. There's a 9" gap under the building. It has "skirts" made of Victorian style skirting boards attached to the base,on three sides that finish two inches above the paths.
There's a wood and mesh screen over the gap at the back to prevent any animals getting under there.

Hello. I can't quite see from your pics but do your sides have an overhang on the base, or butted right up. If so why the overhang please.

By the way, mine won't be anywhere as good as yours.

There's 3" X 2" timber that butts up to the edge of the floor which is the same roofing ply as the rest of the building. The side panels are screwed to the inside of the 3 X 2 and the back panel to the outside.

Another fine reply by Doghouse.
It should be dead easy.
Either screw direct or use some brackets.
Building suppliers should have a huge range of builders ironmongery including lengths of perforated strip used to attach roof members to brickwork
