What type of nails we should use for sheathing roof and walls of a shed?


no buy a 9' or more likely to find 10' 2x4 and cut it to length.
i still will suggest the rubber roof with the extra 2x4 on top to give fall as best plan

What type of nails we should use for sheathing roof and walls of a shed?


Some confusion here...front wall is 15 feet long and top plate also be 15 feet long and I have to put something on top plate of front wall to create a slope..

I dont understand why are you saying buy 10 feet 2x4 and cut to length? ..10 feet is already smaller than 15"

as you posted in #6 you were going to use 8 ' studs so use them on one side and take 10 foot studs and cut them to 8'8" for other side to get your 8" fall

Well that can be one option to do it but if I cut to 8.8' than rafter would be another 3.5 inches so total would be more than 10 feet ...

and that will not be pitch ..pitch would still be higher because of overhang...front overhang would be about 2 feet..correct me if am wrong?

I am really confused here..don't know what is the best way...

1 one option is increase the height on front wall by buying longer 2x4 and cut to desire height..i.e 8.4' something..

2. other option is cut the back wall height to 7.6' and front height to 8.2'
( I would not choose this option because its double labor and shed height will be decreased overall.)

3. third option is don't cut any lumber on front or back just stack 2x4 on top of top plate to get desired slope...

Please suggest what is the best solution?

Thanks again but if I cut them at 8.8 total on that front wall would be 8.8 feet +3 inches (top and bottom plate)+1 foot(floor) = 9 feet and 11 inches but like I said I will have a overhang of 2 feet so if it will 9 ft. and 11 inch on top plate..on over hang it will be more than that which would be more than 10 feet...I hope you will get my point/problem..
