Upper end studs

Would you please describe the best way to do the upper end wall framing on the 16 x 12 Saltbox Shed. I don't see this described in the plans, nor can I find it here. It appears that the studs here will need to be notched to fit around the collar tie.

Thanks,

Rich

Upper end wall framing

Hi Rich, it's John from shedking. The easiest way to frame the upper 'gable' end is to first set your end truss into place on the top plate. Once in place its just a matter of finding the location of the upright studs coming off the top plate that go up to the truss. These uprights should be spaced every 2'. The middle upright is basically parallel with the surface of the truss, so it gets toenailed or screwed down at the bottom, then up at the top it can be nailed to a plywood gusset on the inside of the truss. All other remaining uprights are toenailed to the top plate, then 'notched' at the top so that you have part of the 2x4 to nail to the back side of the truss

I hope this helps explain the process a little better

Thank you for buying a set of my plans.
