Could you point out which parts of my framing are wrong so I can try and correct them? Thanks

Shed Questions


Check out the picture in allthumbsdiy's earlier post. Your shed doesn't have a double top plate. Nor does it appear to have any jack studs or a real header over the door opening.

The top plate is going on before my roof after I string line my sides and put my braces on. The jack studs are there and in an earlier post I said I have to add my header boards. The cripplers that are there are temporary until I can go get 2x10s for the header, since the opening is 10 inches. I'm going to use 2x10s and 1/2" OSB for the header.

Shed Questions


the angle cross brace pieces look like they could be longer to spread their holding capacity out onto the rafters more. or even leave the ones you have like they are and add another one that is longer and butts to the first one, together they would be the thickness of a 2x8...
