Just a couple of thoughts.
First, there is a lot of good information already here.
Secondly, I always find it useful to have a second set of hands. If you can’t find extra hands, clamps might be your next best bet. Clamps can hold things temporarily in place while you fasten them together.
Thirdly, to get things square, start with getting the base level. Since you want to rest upon cement pads, getting these perfectly level is crucial. If you need more help on this, I can give you pointers later if you like.
Fourth, once you establish level, get things perfectly vertical. A level, preferably 4’ or longer, is best.
Fifth, start attaching cross pieces. These should be perfectly square/perpendicular to the posts. This can be accomplished by measuring or with a speed square or framing square.
These are all very generic suggestions and if you want more specifics, please let me know.

Please can someone explain how the shed is picked up and moved? Does one need a forklift? I don't follow this idea at all!
Denise Cares wrote:Wow, Sonja very impressive! You did a great job and it looks very nice! You've inspired me to try putting up something to cover my woodpile. What did you use to cover the roof? How does it hold up to rain or snow? I get heavy snow here, even 2 or more feet. I have pallets that I could use as some suggested.

We went with a slanted top to be able to have the rain go down the back. We had air vents around the top, but still enclosed. This worked for us.
