« Part 8: Walls (part 3) and the roof begins Part 9 of Workshop series Part 10: A quick update »

As I have not done a blog in a while, even though I have been working hard lol. Here is a blog to get you LJs up to date on the progress of the new shop. To be honest there is to much progress to write in detail however I will give you a brief, first I put the noggins in. Then we started on the roof joists, cutting the birds mouth, to tie in the walls. once all of them were on we started putting on the ply.

Looks great! One question though
Why did you not use a double top plate to tie the walls togather?
Here in Cali. that is a standard they make us abide by.
Its coming along fine you should be moved in before you know it.

Hi Jim, over here it is acceptable to use a single top plate and as the building is under a certain size, it does not have to abide by any codes.

Lookin’ Good! Callum…

I like your joinery on the scarf joint. Nice & straight. I can’t quite tell from the photo, but it looks as though you slabbed some ply on each side of the scarf joint for some extra strength. Am I seeing right?

Keep up the good work & progress. I’ll be sure to make a point of checking your blog.

Hi Frank, I have not put any ply on the joint yet. However I am going to do it now, it should feature in the next blog.

Thanks for the idea and input
