Quote from: North Sask on January 06, 2014, 12:15:30 AMT&G floor sheathing has the really annoying feature of being 15mm short of a regular 4x8 sheet. Is there any good way to deal with this situation or do I have to change the name of my thread to "15.75x24 1.5 Story Cabin Project" (like Mountain Don)?
Quote from: North Sask on January 10, 2014, 11:19:04 PMJust to confirm, I will be able to stick with my 24" OC stud spacing until the last stud bay, at which point I will need to make up the lost width, correct?

Quote from: MountainDon on January 10, 2014, 11:55:07 PMYes, but the stud bays will not all be equal even if you built a wall framed to be exactly 16 feet wide. You lose something in the width of the end stud bays the way the corners are made typically with three 2x's. If you build the long walls first they occupy 3.5 or 5.5 inches of the 16 ft width, throwing off the symmetricalness.
