    two by four skids


    In my culture, we are not familiar with "shed on skids" thing, so I don't understand what unit is used in "two by four skids", could anyone help me out? Is the unit foot?

    Thanks in advance.

    Lumber - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    A 2 x 4 is a piece of lumber, whose size before finishing is 2 inches by 4 inches (width and depth). The length of a 2 x 4 varies, but there are various standard sizes (in feet).

    Someone made a skid out of 2 x 4s and used that to move the shed.
