The Structure of the framed garage should start with waterproof bottom plates secured by anchor bolts in the concrete slab. The walls should be built with 2 by 4 studs 16 inches apart to guarantee a structurally strong wall and 8 feet high. Rafters should be 2 by 6 studs 16 inches apart to support snow and other elements. Make sure the rafters are securely embedded into the top plates of the walls with the bird mouth cut method. Once the sheathing is installed on the walls and roof vinyl siding is the most recommended siding as it is the most maintenance free and economical in the market.
