Step 2: Create a Frame

Picture of Create a Frame
Using the windows you chose as a guide, construct a frame for each wall. Use good lumber for this, as it is the structure that holds all the weight. I used all 2 x 4s for the studs and 4 x 4s for the corner posts. Choose a length that allows at least 14" of the stud to be placed in the ground for support.

"Choose a length that allows at least 14" of the stud to be placed in the ground for support."...as in buried in the ground like a post? standard non-treated 2x4's?

Yes, bury it in the ground for support. Any wood in contact with soil should be pressure treated, otherwise you'll be replacing them in just a few years due to rot. Good Luck!
