Wall frame plan and stud outlay
This plan shows the placement of the studs from a bird's-eye-view. In this particular plan, the studs are spaced at 600 [2ft] crs or o.c. (which means "at centers" or "on center"). This means the studs are spaced apart 600
(2ft) from the center of one stud to the center of the next stud.
Studs spaced at 600 [2ft] crs/o.c. are also placed appropriately to accommodate standard width 1200 [4ft] cladding or lining, either exterior or interior.
Footing and post (pile) plan
This plan shows the placement of the posts and where the footing holes should be dug, from a bird's-eye-view. The holes should be 300 [1ft] square and at least 450 [18"] deep.
In colder areas the footings should go below the frost line.
There should be a thickness of concrete at least 100 [4"] between the underside of the post and the bottom of the hole. The holes should be spaced at max 1200 [4ft] crs/o.c. (at centers/on center).
NOTE: The posts should be a minimum of 150 [6"] above ground level, with a layer of durable vapor barrier between the top of the post and the bottom plate of the wall frame (sole plate/bottom plate/wall plate).
