On the one hand, it is important to stress the need for that animal to be rescued. This is an animal who has been most probably very much loved and cared for for years. It has most probably spent most of its life with its human family or human companion. This is not a wild animal who can find love, affection, family, food, and shelter on its own. And to top it all, this is a very distressed animal who is grieving the loss of its human family or companion. And it is at risk of being euthanized if not adopted by a certain time, depending on the shelter policy. Therefore, it is crucially important for the caring people of this world to spread the word about this animal and get it adopted as soon as possible. A sad picture and heart-rending words on social media are essential to capturing the attention of a potential adopter.
Larger sheds usually have wall heights similar to a residential home. When building a shed I always recommend that the walls be slightly shorter so that the 8'-0" T1-11 siding can go from the top plate down to the bottom plate and overhang at least an inch and a half below the floor level. This keeps the water from running down the wall and into the shed. If regular 92 5/8 framing studs are use then the wall height will be 8-1 which necessitates the use of a strip of siding at the top. You will then need to install backing behind the joint and a flashing over the joint. This extra work and materials can be avoided if the shed walls are built at 7-7 tall.
For the frame, 2x6 or 2x8 pressure-treated lumber is recommended. Exterior grade plywood A 3 /4 inch is required for a sturdy floor. Doubling up sheets of inch plywood is an acceptable way to achieve this goal. If a lawnmower or other heavy equipment like snow blower or snowmobile will make its way into the shed, it is a good idea to consider tongue-and-groove boards to support the weight of these items. In addition, investing in pressure treated plywood is also recommended for climates prone to high humidity and wood-boring pests like termites.
