Shed Wall Corners

Shed Wall Corners

hello,

i really appreciate your site, excellent information.

if i were building shed walls like you describe here, how do the corners come together? do the shorter end walls fit in between the framing of the longer side walls? could i use a 4x4 post in each corner to affix the walls to?

Exactly what I was looking for NEW
by: Laz

Thanks for the response, that plus the image makes it completely clear. I guess it doesn't necessarily matter which wall butts up against which, as long as they are framed up to the right size to make a tight corner.

Attaching the corners of shed walls
by: John

Hi, This is a great question and one that seems fairly simple to a builder but if you have never done any framing before, it can be a mystery!

As you can see from the picture, it shows the front corner of a shed's front wall and the shed's right wall.

The right wall of this particular shed is framed first and stood up. Then the left wall. The next wall to be framed can either the back or front, but in this picture it shows the front wall. Bascically once you have the wall ends meeting in the corners as shown, you just nail them together with 12d or 16 d nails. In this example, you would nail from the flat surface of the end of the front wall into the outer most end stud of the right wall.

So there is no need to insert one wall into the other or use a 4x4 post in the corner. They basically butt into one another and get nailed together about every 16" or so. Of course, this is done after you make sure your walls are square and level!

Hope I have answered your question satisfactorily!

and you can visit that page where I have virtual 3d shed models and you can go inside and zoom in and rotate around and look at all the framing.
