Due to city bylaws and other bureaucracy I can't place a 18x18 plot, so went with a 8x12. Razz

Broke ground today.




I farmed for lumber for a while using a macro script:





Some assembly required.

I am doing a time lapse of the whole build so once it's done I'll put it all together and make a video.

My attached garage (where lumber is in now) has been acting as a shed, but I want to use the garage for a shop for woodworking etc so my goal is to build this shed, store stuff in it, then start working on the garage. I want to insulate and put hvac so I can use it all year round. I have lot of smaller projects such as new computer desk that I've been wanting to build for a long time but it's hard when the garage is full of stuff.

Did a bit of progress today, does not look like much but I did not work on it all day. I did intend on that, but had to do a few trips to HD when I realized I forgot a few things, like uhh joist hangers. Typical me I always forget or miscount something. Razz



I still need to square it off and adjust the 6x6 beams at the bottom. Really once the floor is done I think the rest is going to go faster. It's critical to get everything straight and square and also in the right location (lined up with house) everything after that I just base on the work I already did.

Suppose those blocks should have been a little closer to the ends though, kind of realizing that now. But think it will be fine.

A bit of progress on my shed so far this week. I'm a little slow, but the floor is all done!

Put some plywood in each joist cavity to hold insulation and act as rodent block: (don't mind the big piece on top it was just stored there overnight)


Insulation:


Floor all done:


Might rain tonight so covered it up:


Doing this a little overkill by insulating it but I may potentially want to put some electronic equipment in there at some point like a solar setup and a backup NAS or something. So this extra step did add a bit more initial work for the floor.

Tomorrow I may take a break, if not, trusses are the next thing to start on so I can set them aside and have them ready when the walls are up. I can use the platform as a place to template them. Saw a video where they basically use small pieces of 1x2 screwed in the floor to build a jig so probably going to do that.

I really got lucky with the weather though, so far it has not rained. Suppose to tonight though, I hope it clears up by morning. It's a little too hot out for my taste but I won't complain at this point. This was the perfect week to take off. Totally lucked out.

Keeps raining, then my vacation ended, so now I pretty much need to work on it any day I get lucky that it's not raining. Ended up finishing the trusses today after work, worked pretty much till it got dark.



Off again starting tomorrow but of course with my luck it's suppose to rain every single day that I'm off.
