We just moved into a new place, and there is a slab in the back yard that I want to build a shed on if possible. It was poured for a basketball court, so it is low - just an inch or two above grade. I may need to put a french drain along one side (if it ever rains here again, that is), but otherwise the drainage looks fine. I'm mainly concerned with the siding being within an inch or so of the dirt.

Can anyone tell me what the "right" solution is for this?

I'm considering forming and pouring a 2-3" tall "footing" around the perimeter to build the walls on, or laying treated 4x4's first and building on top of them (sorta like a "double bottom plate"). I think I prefer the treated 4x4's approach, if it will work. It seems like less work, and would probably actually look better, too. Laying a good bead of caulk before I anchor them would probably be just as good as concrete.

Any ideas??
