Morning,

I have recently laid a concrete base in the garden for a new workshop. It is larger than the workshop base as it will also be a woodstore and shelter for garden furniture etc. consequently it was constructed with a fall so water drains from the back and sides.

Obvious issue now is the workshop floor will have a slight slope in two directions, which might be annoying (it’s not built yet).

What are my options for levelling the workshop floor?

There will be a brick course which the wooden structure will be built on.

Cheers.

Might be easier to use furring strips under the shed - (battens cut at the appropriate angle along their length) - than change the base.

They will also reduce/delay damp penetration into the workshop bearers.

You mean put wood battens / joists across the floor to level then place floorboards on top of them?
