Install Vinyl Siding on Shed that is not Level

I have an old Shed 10' x 8' that is in good condition and I plan to Install horizontal Vinyl Siding on it.

My one problem is that the shed was installed 12 years ago on Cement Blocks and is not perfectly level. I have a 3/4"
difference in level along the 8' run as the ground has settled.

I would like to know how best to do the installation so it does not look bad.

I am afraid that trying to Jack it up to adjust the level will destroy the building.

Would appreciate experienced input on my options.

Thank you

Install the siding and plant bushes? Paint the concrete blocks to match the siding? Ignore it because it won't be noticeable? I don't have any real good ideas, but I would not jack the building.

Hello fellow canadian.I would try to jack up the shed.#/4 is not too much.If you split the difference and install siding crooked,you will not notice the difference.Don,t put it on level or it will look really out.

leave it alone ...

if it's only 3/4" over 8' i wouldn't mess with it. install the siding parallel to the shed and go on. visually i don't know that i could detect 3/4" over 8'. if anyone ever noticed it and pointed it out i'd kick in the #%$.
