    I'm about to lay a concrete foundation for the above and wanted to run things past people who know more than me...
    My methodology is:
    • Shutter the area with timber and stakes.
    • Tramp soil down (its quite compact and I think clay).
    • Lay thin layer of builders sand.
    • Lay DPM (and upsides of shutters)
    • Lay thin layer of builders sand.
    • Lay 4-5'' layer of concrete (5:1).
    • I was going to then lay a course of bricks on top which to secure my shed frame (on top of DPM between brick and stud wall).
    Seems reasonable (to me!) but do I need rubble under the first layer?
