Here is where we left off tonight, all four walls up, not yet fully secured but up!! In case you cant tell, the door is on the other side of the tree so you can't see the opening, it will hide the door for both astethtics (mom wants it like this) and will hopefully increase the security of it by making it look inaccessable. We have settled on a custom roll up door we are having made, can't wait to get it!

Yea it's gonna be great when you get done.Are you going to hand stack the roof or have trusses?

It's too late now. But you would have liked the door on the "long end" (your 15' side) versus on the "short side" (your 12' side) as you would have had more/longer room to get equipment in/out and parked. Everyone I have ever built I did it that way and really liked it versus the standard of on the side.

Good work there though young man in any event. :clapping:

Everything has been and is going to be built from scratch

Could you explain a bit, ide like to know what you mean, i probably do, just not in that terminology. I know what trusses are but dont' know what hand stacked is, the way we are building is similar to trusses.

Be sure to use headers and cripples on any window/door opening. Code would require it, especially on bearing walls. Also be sure to use a double top plate and lap the corners.
Need pics??? I have some from my shop going up if you need help.

You can email me..

Hey mike, looking good and br549oicu8 nailed it right on the head, please double plate the top and overlap the corners, makes a huge difference. Looks like you got headers in, thats good. Also, consider doing 2x4's in between the studs down at the bottom. That helps a lot too!!! Lookin good dude, im guessing your doing roll on roofing??? the kind that you heat up with a torch and then lay on. That'd be nice.

Thanks SFL, thats for sure, all of the pool stuff goes up on the loft and all the tools get organized on racks and shelves that will be built. No progress today, i had to cut 5 lawns after school then go get wood for trailer mods. No progress tomarrow either as ive got another 5 lawns to fit in!! I won't cut on wednesday to some shop progress goin!!

Yes, all the walls have a double top plate on them, Travis(newbie07) what is roll on roofing??lol. we shingle roofs up here!!

Newbie07
05-08-2006, 09:13 PM
Nothing done today because I did 5 yards and tomorrow ive got 5 yards and the next day ive got 10 yards and the next day....................Down here in Texas I did 2 yards today and one tomorrow. Thats all my yards!!!! the next days will be spent door to door (:waving: hi my name is Travis Whitlock and I have a lawn care busin......(door slams).............:confused: oh ummm....ok well I'm sorry to waste your time) That's how my luck has been LMAO :laugh: Man osrry to jack your thread for my complaining but you whipping my butt. Glad you double plated that helps mucho. As far as roll on roofing, you heat it up with blow torch and then it sticks to the plywood REALLY well. Only use it on sheds and stuff so i thought you might be using that. Anyway, sorry bout the long post, its lookin good, ttyl

Looking good. I live right next door in Brookline. Nashua did not require footings past the frost line there? Our town requires it on any structre larger than 120 sq ft I believe.

The 120 square foot rule usually is the max size you can construct without a permit. The Uniform Building Code gives the jurusdiction the choice to waive footing requirements for structures up to 400 square feet if it is an incidental use structure. This small shed would fit into that category. Hopefully all of that was secured prior to starting this project.

I work on this from the second i get home, around working, then till it gets too dark to see, then we break out the big halogen flood lights, the work till we are too tired, im having a blast with this thing!! Having the roof almost done really brings the project together!!

I love geometry class, finish my quiz and get on here for the rest of the period!!

STOP being such a freakin bully!! This is like the 3rd time you inserted your "legal" requirements into this thread when nobody even ask you for them. Big friggin deal that you are a local building inspector where you live thousands of miles away from this young man! :sleeping: Who cares! This hard working young man is building himself a storage building in his familes backyard for his personal use not some large building open to the public and so what if they don't have a permit or aren't building it to UBC specs, which BTW you don't know that they aren't!! Shoot, as you very well know Mr. Inspector, 8 out of every 10 backyard storage buildings built in America (and yes in KS right there where you are, too) are done "illegally" so lay of the dude.

As you have done in the past "Mr. M&M".. you attempt to make things personal. I have seen many illegal structures forced to be removed due to illegal or subpar construction. So you fault me for attempting to give good sound advice to a young person?? Would you think it is "just" to know and not say??
It is obvious you don't know.
I personally prefer to "help" vs. hinder like you always do. I have read your posts for quite some time noting you are always sarcastic. Is it possible for you to be constructive instead of destructive????

Nice work. Brings back memories of when we built our garage at my parent's cabin. Me, my dad, a contractor for help and some family friends, we were able to finish in 2 days. Here are some pics of the work.

Still had to stain but you get the idea. We just redid the roof that the tripod was taking the pictures on. I set the camera to take a picture every 30 minutes so it made a neat slide show (I took out some pictures, it didn't take us 4.5 hrs).

What are your planning for the interior walls?
"Slatwall" is a great idea, but VERY $$$
I've got a 12'x16' in the planning stage right now, and would like your opinion!
