Wood is usually my first choice.

Sorry, I just don't know what you would use.

well, if he limits himself to the 8' x 10' pad that one yard of concrete (in the buggy) will fill to 4"... then 4 or 5 10' 2x4's will be enough (use the extra for bracing) to form up that pad. Lets solve one problem at a time.

maybe you should buy a measuring tape, square, level, twine, line level, shovel, rake, bull float, finish trowels... yeah, you better build that shed soon with all those tools sitting out in the yard.

Is OSB considered framing lumber? Or sheathing?
