How many 2x4's needed to build shed 18x20?
Depending as to what state you live in, the general answer is no. Areas zoned agriculture have different building regulations than a property that is zoned residentiol o…r commercial. Where I live, and I am zoned agriculture also, the only permit I am required to have is a convayence permit. This permit requires me to build according to the covnents that were set up by the developer and county planners. There are no inspections unless it is by the electrical inspector. This is a state requirement that cannot be changed by city or county governments.
it would depend on actual the dimensions of the room rather then the square footage. Play it safe and order 1 2X4 for every 1 linear foot of wall.
depends on your town or neighborhood. but most do need them nowadays call your village hall and ask for the building department. if you live in a homeowners as…sociation, there will be more rules you need to follow, call your association also.
figure 1 per foot so 30 + 30 foot of stud for bottom plate = 60 foot of stud for top plate .... if using 8ft lumber i would get 42 total.
10 studs for the walls for 16" on center and you need a single bottom plate and double top plate... 16 2x4's should do the trick
Average brick size according to answers.com is 8" width X 2.25" height 4 Meters = 157.480" / 8" = 19.685 Brick Wide 3 Meters = 118.110" / 2.25" = 52.493 Brick High 19.68…5 X 52.493 = 1033.325 X4 (four walls) 1033.325 (one wall) X 4 = 4133.3 Bricks formula: (157.480 / 8) X (118.110 / 2.25) X4 = 4133.3 Answer = 4133.3 Bricks
12 feet is 12 x 12 = 144 inches. Divide by 16 inches spacing and you get 9 needed. Add one more for the end =10
There are 19.2 in each tree. Depending on the size of the tree.
Not if it is only 120 square feet
360 square feet. Multiply the two dimensions - the result is the number of square feet.
The answer depends on the spacing of the 2x4s and the design of the structure (i.e. roof, the number of windows, & doors, etc). In general, though, if you figure there will be… one 2x4 every 16 inches on center for the walls, you can roughly solve the problem as follows: 1. You can take the square root of your 800 SF to calculate the length of the walls. This would produce a structure that is approximately 28' 3" x 28'3" square (28.28 ft^2 = sqrt (800)). 2. Since you will have 4 walls and each wall will have at least 22 studs in it (22=28.28' * 12" / 16") then you will need at least 88 studs for the walls (88 studs =22 studs * 4 walls). 3. Assuming you make a simple slanted roof with no soffit overhang and 20" rafter spacing, you would need a minimum of 34 2x4s for rafters & a center support beam. (34 = (28.28' * 12" / 20" * rafters placed on both sides of a center support beam). 4. You will need 36 (2x4x10's) for wall sole & wall caps (36 = (28' 3" / 10 * 4 walls * 3 layers (1 sole + 2 cap layers)) Therefore, you would need a minimum of 158 (2x4s) (158=88+34+36). You would of course need more 2x4s for framing windows, doors, & any interior walls, closets, etc.
It depends upon whether or not the wall is load bearing. If load bearing, the distance between standard studs is nominally 16 inches. If not load bearing, it can be 24 inches.… There may be complications at the ends of the wall and doors and windows will also increase the number of 2x4's that are needed. A good rule of thumb is to figure one per foot. So in your case that would be 16.
Builders will normally order 1 per foot when framing 16" on center to cover the cripples and corners. This does not include the wood required for the bottom and top plat…e.
