Longer skids are connected by six foot 2x6s on each side and bolted together with twelve lag bolts. Eight wide buildings get 2x6 floor joist 12" on center and the rest use 2x8 joists, also on 12" centers. The standard decking is pressure treated 2x6 tongue and groove. You can also select pressure treated tongue and groove 3/4' plywood decking or the plywood as a sub-floor under the 2x6 flooring as options.
Wall studs are 2x4 16 inches on center. Stud spacing of 12" on center is an option. Wall to roof truss is secured with hurricane clips and design specifications that meet or exceed Florida wind code requirements.

Best Built Buildings roofs have 2x6 rafters and trusses on all but eight wide buildings which have 2x4 rafters on regular height wall buildings and 2x4 trusses on extra height buildings. All trusses are made with 18" double gussets at the ridge and 2x4 or 2x4 joists at the bottom.
