« Part 12: the clean up is well under way Part 13 of setting up the new shop series Part 14: RAISE THE ROOF THE RESTORATION OF THE SHED HELP FROM LJ BUDDY »

Well after several days of pulling and cutting off nails,The Shed started being rebuilt on Sunday. I then i worked on Monday and Tuesday and today we were back at it we stood up the other three walls today. I will be using hurricane ties tomorrow to tie the studs to the top and bottom plate. I am very excited we got this much done. It will take me a while to tie all the studs in to the plates and then i am going to tie the walls to the foundation. with long straps no more silly wind storms going to collapse my Shed. I may make the Christmas deadline yet. I will add photos in the morning so come back again and see where I am at I want to raise the roof in the morning if we can a nice crane would be good tomorrow for sure. but most likely a few young guys will lift it up there by them selves and we will nail it.

Dude, you sure using “hurricane” ties isn’t bad luck, lol? Congratulations on getting your shed back up and going.
