The floor and wall frames
1. The Floor
Position the two skids level and Being of equal distance from each other at all points. on firm ground free of any vegetation.
Space the skids apart so that the inside measurement from A solid piece of lumber that fits under a building in place of a footings or foundation making the building able to be moved. to skid is 1600mm (64″).
Make up the floor frame consisting of 8 joists and 2 boundary joists to the Any of the three linear measurements, length, breadth and depth. as shown in the ‘Skid and One of a series of parallel members used to support the floor. Part of the framing that provides the structure for a floor. Layout’ plan.
Use a hard level surface such as a A mixture of sand, gravel, water and cement which hardens to a stone like condition when dry. drive or A building or enclosure primarily designed to house motor vehicles. It can be either attached to the main house or detached and surrounded by open space. floor as a work area.
Use the ‘Skid and Joist Layout’ plan and the ‘Materials List’ for layout reference and individual Piece of lumber that is part of a frame or structure. sizes and lengths.
The finished floor frame should be a Four-sided figure with four right angles. 2400mm x 3000mm (8ft x 10ft).
When the floor frame is made, position it in place on top of the skids. Ensure the floor frame is a true rectangle (all corners are 90° / right angles) and then To secure with nails or screws. it to the skids. Join two pieces of wood by driving nails at an angle to the surface of one piece and into the second piece. A nail driven at an angle to fasten one member to another. (Toenail. A nail driven at an angle to the member.) thru the joists into the skids.
Fix the 18mm (3/4″) A piece of wood made of three or more layers of wood veneer laminated together with glue. sheets to the floor frame. Use 60mm (2 1/2″) Covered with a protective coating of zinc. nails to fix the plywood floor to the floor frame nailing 150mm (6″) apart along the seams (where the sheets join) and a maximum of 200mm (8″) apart around the boundary. and along all intermediate joists.
2. The Wall Frames
Cut the 100mm x 50mm (2″ x 4″) wall frame members to length as shown in the ‘Wall Frame and A 100×50 (2×4) vertical framing member used to construct walls. Placement’ plan. Cut the longest pieces first to minimize wastage.
Make the wall frames up on even ground, referring to the ‘Wall Frame and Stud Placement’ plan which shows the placement of the studs from a bird’s eye-view.
In this particular plan, the studs are spaced at 600 [2ft] See CENTERS 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 (where possible).
Studs spaced at 600 [2ft] crs/o.c. are also placed appropriately to accommodate standard width 1200 [4ft] The exterior surface of a building. panels, either exterior or interior.
