After a long weekend of good labor in the sun, things are starting to come together. The walls are being built and sheeted (window and door openings are under the ply). I underestimated the time involved to build the walls, but I was doing everything myself. Walls consist of 2×6 studs set on 16in centers. Two windows are 3’wx5’h single hung and four picture windows 6’wx2’h and two 36” exterior entry doors. I strayed from the original plans a little by swapping out the single hung windows for picture windows as I like the thought of a little extra privacy and placing windows higher up in the wall so I can have more useable space on the wall to work or for tool placement underneath. Window bottoms will be set around 7 foot off concrete.
So far I am on par to set walls and trusses this coming Friday. Hopefully the next post will be an erected building.
