It has been nearly 20 years since I’ve used a hammer & nail at this kind numbers. Felt good :) Fire smoke in Northern Nevada was finally pleasant after 2 weeks of heavy smoke & 100 degree consecutive days. I took advantage of it!

I invested in a air nailer years ago and even a coil nailer for shingles but always a pleasure to swing the old 20 oz Estwing! Did pull them out last year to build the Daughter and my favorite Son in Law a Garden shed.
Keep up the good work, remember to keep hydrated!

Looking good…..

A few years ago, I built a 8×16 storage building. I bought an angle framing nailer and then sold it for almost what I paid when I was done. It was a great tool and saved my body from the hammer swinging.

Andre…I may consider looking into a 20oz hammer. Currently using some imported fiberglass handled unknown oz.
Red… if I go this route again of so many nails, I will get a framing nailer.

Of course this weekend…I come to find out my country does not require a permit or inspection. However, the City Of Reno does. Grrr… so now will have to go talk to them this week. Which is ok cause before putting plywood siding up, I changed my mind. Will add 2 small windows.
