Not much to be said, as I said a while back, this blog is bound to become repeats without the enthusiasm of discovery. Don’t get me wrong we are excited to get more space, but the building process is very routine these days. In fact the experience is starting to show, what took me 2 days of work now takes a short one, and I’m less tired, and the result is better. It’s really nice to know what you’re doing.

Staging the boards

Cutting to length (12′ in this case). I can now wield this skilsaw one handed with great accuracy, such was not the case a few years back.

Working alone means more rigging

There are really 2 distinct subfloors to this project

June this year has been particularly perfect weather for building

And now, blocking…

But again, it went a lot easier with years of practice

That’s it for today 🙂

Put the Tin on

It took about 3 hours. I want to build another one before next Winter and I’m pretty sure I’ll adapt the way I built it, not the plan itself which worked just fine, just the order and methods for putting it together. I’ll try and publish a guide then. In the end, it takes a day to build, and it’s very sturdy.
