Shed 2.0 - Part Dos

Progress soldiers on here in the hallowed halls of the gleaming towers of One Utahdog Center, World Congress of the Americas.  I should say that to assemble the shed we are using structural hardened and coated screws suitable for treated wood and for outdoor framing and structural applications where increased shear resistance is necessary. To facilitate the screwing, because here in corporate America we are all in favor of indiscriminate screwing, upper management approved the embezzlement of funds so as to allow for the purchase of new tools! The new hammer driver and drill combo. 20V, compact, and ridiculously powerful, and made in-country. Model number is DCF885. It is a jewel to use.

We go vertical. Walls framed 16" on center, pressure treated base plate and top plate. The diagonal in the below picture steadies the wall plumb and straight in preparation for the additional walls to go up.

Side walls and rear wall up.

Framed for a simple plywood door.

The gable ends are screened and trimmed out to allow for ventilation and light. There are no windows in my design.

Roof rough-framed and sheeted with 1/2" PT Plywood.

Next up, siding! And a door!
