    The pictures aren't blocks ..........They are a square frame footing but you can't see if he dug it out and set the concrete below the frost line.........

    Your right .........if you don't dig out a hole below the frost line......and then and form and set it.........Yeah......it be worthless.

    A nightmare
    . If you do this, the wooden rack will rot.

    There is no waterproofing, no ventilation ..
    As you know, concrete has the property of "pulling water from the ground," so any wooden structure that is put on concrete must be waterproofed. !!!!
    This is protection from groundwater

    In addition, one should never allow water after rain to accumulate under a wooden structure
    This is protection from atmospheric water

    Finally.. Any wooden structure should be located not lower than the height of the snow cover. Approximately 50 cm. This rule is leveled, if you lay rubble .

    .. GOST (Government standard) of the USSR "storage of softwood" My photo shows how to do it.

    I'm an electrician...........been around construction sites for a long time...........we use steel and concrete all the time...........

    But my field is fully automated electrical systems in a Industrial environment.........

    I never said I built houses for a living..........but .......I could do it if I had to.........and there is nothing wrong with what I just showed for a shed............

    You are in here trying to prompt an argument.........I'm just playing the devils advocate......

    Now why are there bubbles in your concrete pour.............LOL
