    Simply reduce the width by 2-3/4" which is the amount of two frames.

    I have many different plans, available, here.

    More than one plan is for various 8-frame components.

    So it would be 13 1/2 by 19 7/8 for a 8 frame box is this correct?

    You got it! Lid and bottom board reduce width by 2-3/4" as well.

    I don't have plans for eight frame boxes but I have instructions on how to cut down 10 frame to 8 frame:
    http://bushfarms.com/beeseightframem...#cutdownframes
    Which will give you the roughly the same advice as Barry gave. The typical eight frame box is either 13 3/4" outside or 14" depending on who you buy them from. At 13 3/4" you need to reduce the measurements of all widths by 2 1/2".
