Shed - how level should the base be?

Hi all,

I have just built a terrace at the top of my garden with the intention of putting a shed on it. The terrace has a slope of 2cm in 4m to allow for drainage. Is it ok to build a shed on this slope, or do I need to look at ways of making the shed base perfectly level?

Kind regards

The shed can be slightly tilted. It's mainly a matter of personal preference. If it's too sloped it will be visible to the eye and it may feel odd to walk on the sloped floor but a shallow slope may not even be noticed.
