you can or add a 2x4 under the rafter acting as a top plate and cut the roof pitch angle on the top of the studs where they butt the plate at layout. the 2x4 plate helps to straighten the rafter out too...

Yes, just plumb up from the wall stud layout and go full to the rafter plate with the same layout. then your sheathing goes on the wall at layout to the peak. I usually turn the sheathing sideways for the gable A above the wall top plates.

For either the joists or wall studs- you hook your tape on the outside corner and mark 16" to the center of the joist or stud. Continue this method the length of the wall/floor.
To anchor the wall- do as previously described.
How to layout the joists and studs is not what i asked.

how tall is the ridge above the floor? normally we frame gable end walls continuous from the floor to the roof (depending on height). If the gable end wall is framed separately then we use the sheathing with blocking to eliminate the hinge joint that you'd create.

actually, under the gable walls would be rim joist and under the bearing walls would be rim band.

What do you mean by hinge joint? So, the wall studs and the end gable studs have to directly above one another or can they be offset?

Hey do you have an idea for a door that I can use? The walls are only 6 feet since its a playhouse but I need an exterior door that I can weatherproof. Obviously standard 80'' door wont work. I though of building a shed door with plywood but then not sure how I could incorporate weatherstripping and a threshold. The r.o. for the door is 54" what do you think about getting a prehung exterior and cutting the bottom to fit and the jamb. Only issue is the threshold would be cut off.

In my area....beside the rim board....I also have to have blocking between the joists at the rim board. This basically gives me 3" of wood to nail into.

Additionally....wouldn't the subfloor be there as well? Hence....

Studs
Bottom plate
Sub-floor
Floor joists.
