I am creating a wood frame for my Suncast Sierra shed. I already weighed the pros and cons of each option for a base and came out with a wood frame as the most economical with all factors considered. That being said, I am following the documentation outline attached below:
I have all of the pressure treated wood purchased and will be cutting it soon, however I have never actually built anything, no less outside. What is the best method for connecting these 2x6 boards in the pattern outlined above?
If nails or screws directly between each other, what is the ideal size (I bought 3 inch pressure treated earlier but figured I should ask so I don't splinter the wood if that's overkill on size). I know there are mettle L joints that could be used, so maybe that's the ideal option? (Again if so whats ideal length for screws and size for joint / preferably actual product term so I can ask for them).
Also do I need to pre-drill the holes or should I be fine just directly drilling them with the screw?
