As firefighterontheside said, if you are going to make a shed below, and the span is less than 8’, you can span it with plywood or even OSB siding and it will stiffen the structure wonderfully.

It looks longer than 8’. You can make longer plywood using scarf joints as shipwright shows on one of his boat builds. You would have to ask him if such a joint is strong enough for this application.

Best scarf post…
