I'm hoping to put together a shed that's on a slight slope. It will sit on top of asphalt. What should I use to make sure the floor is level? Some 2x4's? Should I bolt the 2x4's to the asphalt before putting the shed on top? I am totally new at all things DIY. Thank you!

    That depends largely on your shed design (mostly with respect to the floor and joist span). Please edit your post to add details. – isherwood Mar 29 '17 at 18:00

    Asphalt is soft. If you put any kind of weight into the shed proper or its contents, it'll sink right in. As a minimum you need to dig proper footings and mount the shed to a levelled frame. – Carl Witthoft Mar 29 '17 at 19:53
