« Part 4: Pouring Floor Part 5 of Constructing My New 30 X 30 Shop series Part 6: Putting the Exterior Sheeting on Walls »

I made a decision early on that the shop would have 10 ft walls and 2 X 6 studs. I think that the shop will be better built and will hold more insulation. I wish that I could have taken more pictures and that I had a wider selection. The framing went well and the pictures should be self explanatory.

Thanks so much for reading this blog.

Looking good!

Picture #6:
What are those large openings (with Headers) going to be? If for doors, going to have steps outside?

Thank you.

Definitely going to be more efficient with those walls. Are you adding reflective foil insulation to the outside walls? I always love to get the framing together. I feels like what we imagined. LOL! You got enough pictures to tell the story. Nice to have three workers.
