I'm purchasing a pre-fabricated vinyl-sided wood frame storage shed that is constructed on 4 x 4 P.T. skids. I plan on putting down a 3-4 inch base of 3/4 inch limestone on which to set the building. My question regards installing a moisture barrier under the shed. Is it a good idea? If so, should the barrier be placed on top of the rock as is commonly done in a crawl space for a raised foundation house? Or should it be place below the rock but on top of the soil? Thanks in advance for your advice.

No vapor barrier is required for a shed. Just make certain there is adequate ventilation underneath.

The only time you really need a vapor barrier is when you are considering insulating and heating/cooling the space above.

I am putting a plastic shed (6' x 8') on top of a brick platform. Do I need to put down a vapor barrier?
