Yesterday we got the fourth wall up without breaking it. And that was a really weak pun, sorry. Anyway… we have our three windows and the front door framed in, and the bathroom walls are up. Today we ran a 2×6 across the middle of the house, and a 2×4 across the back. Then we ran 2×4 joists using the lumber from the fences that are pictured in the truck in my last post. Then the plywood went down. Feels really sturdy. I like the spacial definition having the wall and loft off-set provides. It’ll be a lot easier to do the roof now that we have a platform to stand on. The loft is only offset 6 inches from the top of the wall, not the foot I had hoped for. But I think there will still be plenty of height.
Who’s side are you on?
Blogs have to have punny titles, right? We’re trying to decide on what to use for siding. We’re thinking of just using pallets. They’re oak, so they’re strong, and they’re incredibly plentiful. There are 7 or 8 4 foot 1×4’s on each, and given that the house is 12 feet long, each pallet could do 2 and a third rows. It would take a lot, but I think it would make for some decent looking clap-board. Anyone have any thoughts on this?
