Next, frame the floor with 2x6s. Start by cutting the 12-ft.-long rim joists for the front and back and marking the joist locations. Cut the joists and nail them to the rim joists. When you’re done, square the joists (Photo above). Then use a taut string line or sight down the 12-ft. rim joist to make sure it’s straight. Then drive toenails through the joists into the 6x6s to hold the joists in place.
Building a 12×20 shed. Thinking about using 2×8 floor joints and rim board with the joists setting on 6×6 pt timbers tucked under the long 20′ sides with a 20′ 4×6 running parallel in the center. There would be support blocks at the 4 corners and in the center of the 12′ width. Then also in the middle of the three 20′ runs. Total of 9 support blocks altogether with them setting on gravel base ground. Does this sound like a good plan to you?

Many sheds come with floor bearers already fixed to the underside. These are smaller timber bearers - usually 3 x 2 inches - that run perpendicular to the timbers of your wooden frame.

This shed brings together antiquity and modernity. It has the simple and clean modern look. It starts with the simple fours walls and simple slanted roof. However, the decoration is different. The bronze paint color gives it more of a rustic feel. Plus some of the knick knacks are more reminiscent that the shed style is. It is one of those garden shed ideas that takes advantage of the best of both worlds. IDEA # 21: Be creative and see how you can bring two different decoration styles together in an attractive way.
