« Part 2: Foundation and Floor Part 3 of Building My First Workshop/Shed series Part 4: Shop Update: Walls and Roof Trusses »

I framed my walls with 2×4s laid 24” O.C. There will be a window on the left and right wall that I got for free from work, and then there will be a 36” steel door in the front. All walls came out square and plumb. I am glad that I designed it on Google SketchUp first because I ended up having just enough lumber as planed.

Thanks for looking. Now I have to get material for siding and the roof.

Can’t quite tell from the photos, did you stud up the corners so you have a way to add interior sheeting?

Hope you used corner bracing to add strength.
