The New Temporary Workshop Episode 4

Yesterday, after working on the Master Bath Project, I thought I could get some work done on the patio. I only got one wall up as it gets dark at 6.

Today, the painters are painting the master bedroom so I had the day off. This means I had some serious time to devote to the new temporary workshop 2. I have been staging materials for weeks, so that I could get some progress going.

So this morning I started framing. This is a view of the bottom of my walls. the bottom plate is pressure treated lumber (the green stuff) with sill sealer attached. This works remarkably well in preventing moisture disintegrating the frame over time.

Attaching the walls to the slab are my favorite fasteners, sleeve anchors. Like I said, if this lifts up in a storm I will already be in Kansas. The posts are pressure treated as well, only because when I was buying lumber they were the only 4×4” that were straight. Unless you have worked with pressure treated lumber, you have no idea how weird this is. Most pressure lumber looks like it belongs in a boatyard.

So by 1, I had the framing up, and went off in search of some new movies.Patioframe9

By 6, i have gotten this far. I sheathed, I cut out and set the door, and sheathed across the front and down the west side. I will cut out and install the windows tomorrow evening.
