The 6x8 shed has now been lifted (safely) from it's foundation and entire foundation removed. I have 6x8x18" stones (cut flat on top) that I plan to set as cornerstones. I want to attach treated wood to the stones and lay new flooring over that then set the shed back on this and reattach. Am I thinking the correct way? Will I use a masonry bit and what type of screw to attach the joist (I think it's called) to the stone?The reason for the stone is to keep this new wood off the ground as termites had obviously lived there awhile.I'm planning on working on this tomorrow so hope you hear me. THANKS! CMAE

You will need a treated 2x4 or 2x6 plate to attach to the stones. The joists then attach to it. The plate goes all around the base and lays flat.

You can use many types of available concrete anchors.
