I am planning on building a garage and I already have the pad poured. My pad is sloped 2.5" to allow for drainage. When I frame my walls do I need to shim the to compensate for the 2.5" slope? I have seen some garages on sloped pads that have no shimming. Any help is appreciated.

Place your pt plate & bolt it, do the layout, line up the studs with the top plates and snap a line across the drop, and cut the studs on your chopsaw.. you need to go up square & plumb for the roof & sheathing.

You can shim but I find it more work as you'll need to use strap ties with that large of a gap.

Next time you level the pad, and drop to the drain or door, usually with a water stop in the slab to stop water backing up into the garage. Then you won't need such heavy drop in only 24 feet.
