Putting the 2x6 header over a 6-10 Pre-Hung exterior door rough opening adds up to the perfect shed wall height. Pre-hung exterior door rough openings are 6-10 , add to that the 5 1/5s for the 2x6 header and 3 for the top plates and you end up with 91 or 7-7. When the wall is 7-7 tall there is plenty of extra length on an 8 sheet of T1-11 to overlap the bottom plate and keep the elements out of your shed.
iii. If there is a tendency for water to get collected on the site where you are going to build the shed, dig out drains around the ground to redirect the water. If water gets collected beneath your shed foundation it will start rotting the wood and threaten the integrity of the shed. You could also build a slope into the ground to direct the water away from the shed base.
For the do-it-yourself handyman, the obvious material of choice is wood. Select a shed plan with standard 2 x 4 construction to allow for insulation in colder climates. You can purchase metal sheds and plastic sheds but they are very limited when the time comes for a modification, paint color, or repair.
