Will the topography of my land in Detroit, MI effect if I can have a shed delivered to my home?
Factors that can impact delivery include the topography of the land and current weather conditions. Moderately sloping land requires buildings to be leveled either with grading the land before delivery, and/or with blocking - generally done with cinder blocks. If your accessory building requires many layers of blocking for it to become level it may also decrease the stability of your structure. Ideally a portable building would rest comfortably on the ground with no requirement for blocking. Having a level gravel pad in place before delivery of your accessory building will ensure your structure is both stable and will improve drainage around your building.
