« Part 1: It all starts with a good floor... Part 2 of 8x12 Shed Spring 2011 series Part 3: Day 3, Wall framing finished up and siding begins »

On day 2, we got into laying out the walls. We went with 2 foot centers on this shed. Last year we did a shed that was 16” on center, framed just like a house and the thing ended up being referred to as an above ground bomb shelter. It was too expensive and was overkill. We also did not utilize a double top plate on top of the walls and we did not use a full header also. I must remind myself this is a simple shed, not a house! We got most of the way with the walls today, tomorrow we will finish and begin siding. Whoever invented the Swanson speed square (Mr. Swanson I presume) was a GENIUS. Here is a picture after the walls were done framing early on day 3.
