shed floor plywood layout?

I am building an 8 x 12 shed. I am planning to have 2x6 joists 16" oc. I am using 3/4" tongue & groove plywood for the floor.

Is there any reason to lay the plywood in one orientation or the other?

I could lay 3 sheets with the 8' dimension of the sheet matching the 8' dimension of the shed. Or, I could turn them 90 degrees, which would require cutting the sheets.


(not to scale)

As konstruction said: perpendicular to the joists. Try to span minimum 1 middle joist (32" wide cut), with the smallest piece. Be safe, GBAR
