    I am building a small shed. walls are 7' 6" x 16'. The roof made from OSB must be larger.Is
    there some dimensions that are better so that one will never need to cut a tile to fit?Is there
    some standar...

    Are H-clips intended only for the roof and not for side shealthing? I read that they are for
    both so I intended to use them for both the sides and the roof. I had wanted to use 14.5" long
    2x4 spacers ...

    I have never seen true 1/2 inch plywood or OSB at HD or anywhere.Only MDF or particle board is
    true dimension thickness, ie nominal and actual are the same. At HD, it says 7/16 OSB.

    Home Depot does not sell 7/16 H clips for 7/16 OSB. They only have 1/2 inch.Would 1/2 inch be
    too loose for 7/16 OSB?

    May I add a 1/2 inch OSB stripe between the top and bottom plate to add 1/2 inch?

    I don't have to match any existing stud, but I may have to cut the OSB sheet to get it to fit.
    92.25 + 4.5 = 92.75.The heel cut of bird's month is usually greater than 0.75". For a gentle
    slope of 15%...

    HD sells 2x4s for king studs labeled as 92 1/4 inches.Is 92 1/4 too short? King stud should be
    92 5/8. Am I right?

    ThanksI have decided to not use wedge expansion anchor and to use L shape cast in bolts. 0.5
    inch and 6 inches long. I will leave 2.25 inch up. I figure 1.5 inch for the PT 2x4 leaving
    0.75 inch for t...

    I just realize that may be pouring in just a small amount of epoxy, as little has half a
    teaspoonful, into the anchor hole and then tighten will greatly strengthen the bolts. It won't
    loosen.

    same piece of 2x...
