    Not a framer but one of my tips would be to use a hammer. I'm modernizing now so an air hammer is fine as well.


    ...unless your using steel framing. If that's the case I'm not sure about the hammer thing.

    I might need to run over and trade you out of one of your specialized, experienced hammers, Us Buckaroo types haven't evolved from rocks and sticks yet..

    The American Wood Council offers a nice Wood Framing Manual that addresses most situations.

    I am not a framer but did a bunch of finish trim and cabinetmaking around new construction. Maybe ask the questions and see what we can do to answer them. Just so you know I always had a running feud with the framers. Between them not getting walls and corners plum and square I had to come in and "Finish" to get things as close to plum and square as possible. The last job I did was installing crown molding in a new construction high end home and it turned into a complete disaster for me. Holding a straight edge along a wall or ceiling after the sheet rockers got done and it looked like a bunch of drunks did the framing and used some real junk stud in the process. Alex Plus was my only friend and I had to buy it by the case.

    The size of the door, width, height and weight will determine the needed header and frame size. If you have an 84 Lumber supply near you they have about the best computer program I have used to work out those details. Unlike the big box stores, 84 has guys that actually do know building and around here they also know the code enforcement regulations for the local towns. OSB (Oriented Strand Board) is an excellent product but basically meant to be covered over in most applications. It does not take well to being painted as a cover over it. We call it Flake Board here and it is very strong however very flaky if left exposed either inside and certainly never outside in the weather. I would suggest using CDX ply if you plan to leave it uncovered inside.

    ... and as Gary well knows start with good materials. I try to always cull the lumber and build with straight, unwarped pieces. Helping a friend today replace a fence and quality of pressure treated timbers he got is dissappointing.
    The shop floor and wall plan sounds straight forward. Frame flat on floor then tip up wall sections?
