Framing For Odd Length Shed Floor

Framing For Odd Length Shed Floor

I need to build an 8' wide, 9' long shed. It's easy with spacing on the 8' walls at 16"OC, but how do I space the studs on the 9' wall given that 16" doesn't go evenly into 108"?

Odd length shed floor framing
by: John the shedmaster

Hi Jeffrey this is a great question! A lot of times people can't build their shed to conform with even numbers. Like your shed floor for example being 9' long. So how is one supposed to handle the framing in this situation?

The answer is a simple one. You still maintain the standard framing of 16" on center. The only difference is that the last inside floor joist to the outside 'rim joist' is only going to be 1' in your example.

What this means is that you will be able to use 2 full sheets with one of them cut down to 7'8" so that you still have the ends of the floor sheeting landing in the middles of the floor joists. If you look at the picture above you can see that I have the different floor sheets in colors for better clarity of what you need to do, along with how the measurements will look for the completed shed floor.
