« Part 2: foundation and framing the walls Part 3 of Building the New Wood Shop series Part 4: finishing the roof,shingles,doors and windows »

After struggling to lift the first long wall I decided that we better split the the other long wall into two parts as it had two 4×4 windows and a man door. we finished the first half and raised it into place. Then began building the second half.

Wow, how easy that was with two smaller sections to lift and manouver into place. we waited till we had the wall completed and then sheeted it after.

. The next day all we had to do was finish the front wal which was pretty easy compared to the rest of the walls. With that done and in place we sheated it and put the top cap on to pull it all together. How exciting that was to see it all come together.

Well that was another good weekend of building. It’s sure nice when the weather co-operates and you have lots of good friends willing to work for beer and food. Cheers guys.
