Best way to frame this shed?.


I am building an 8x8 shed for storage but i want two oppossing walls to be basically fully accessible but at least 6ft of door space.. Its going on skids as well. Shed roof, just looking opinions on best options. I plan on making the doors. DO i just stick frame it and put 2 36-40 inch doors in the middle with headers? Post and beam frame it? just wondering what your would do. plan on siding with T111 type stuff and making doors of same (with framing behind them) Just dont want to jeopardize the integrity of it in anyway thanks

Sounds like you have a good handle on the construction, I think you are on the right track. On the T-111 you might want to make sure the bottom couple of feet are sealed really good as that is where most T-111 rots from water splashing back up on it.

I'd frame it like anyother opening using a 2x8or 10 for the header with possible 'y bracing' transferring back to the trimmers.


- I'd have at least 48" or 4 studs each side of the king studs to attach sheathing to.

hi,build your shed with studs 16"oc and to get the most of your wall space(for shelves,benches,etc)make the doors no more than you will need.shed roof is fine but you will need a header for the rafter load(with it being a 8'x8' ,you can get away with 2 2x4's with osb between(or scrap t-111;,also t-111 is good choice for the siding and doors...have fun

I can have 48 on each side. the whole wall is only eight ft.

An 8X8 shed does NOT need a 2 X 8 or heavier header...there is basically no load above the door. And the OSB on the inside of the wall with the door is a perfect solution to stiffen it and tie in the header.

No,keep the door lite...put the osb to the door frame and to the edge (corners)of the door.If you use plywood siding T-111,than 24" centers on the studs is ok.

ps...depot has sheds to look at.

Yes,when you nail the interior panel to the entire length of the wall frame it will be very strong.make sure to brace the framing in a plumb position first.
