I’m framing an 8×6 floor for a shed and the 2x4x8’s are in fact 1/4 of an inch longer than 8 feet. I know the nominal measurements and have accounted for that, I was just surprised by the extra 1/4” on the end of both boards and feel confident that the excess will mess things up down the line. To trim, or not to trim? That is the question.
And is this normal for board lengths to not be their actual lengths?
