shed wall height

Hi, I don't want to cut all my studs for the walls which will leave an exterior wall that won't take a 4x8 sheet perfectly. May not go with plywood. Instead board on board. I'd rather fuss with the siding than cut those 8 footers. What do you think?

Thanks John, I decided to drop the stud length as you mentioned. In order to get the desired rise I would end up with a back wall too high, and as you mentioned problems with the siding.

shed wall stud height

Hi Rod,

My advice would be to go with 92 5/8" pre-cut studs. If you go with siding panels that are 8', you'll want to make sure that your siding extends down below the floor for weather protection. If you go with full 8' studs you would probably need to go with something like lap siding. But, if you do that, you will need to cover your walls with osb or plywood first for strength, then nail on your lab siding.
