Went up this weekend to get started on my project
Started with this on Sunday afternoon after it rained all day..
I was working alone for most of the day and had to figure out how to stand up walls and not have them fall over. I used a 2 4 frame to stand the wall against and then plumb them true.
After I put up the walls I ran a string line to make sure the walls were stright. I also started to put up the rafters.
I had to figure a way to get the end trusses up by myself so I attached a temp 2 x 4 and slide them up the walls.
Even though I know it is not a race I went from the base to this point by 1:30 in the afternoon.
I had precut all headers, Top and Bottom Plates and all studs so it went fast.
I made a door out of osb so I could secure the building until I get up there again.
This is how the inside looks with the raised trusses I built. The top part of the ceiling is 10' off the floor
My next project is to get power to the building
One last thing I saw OSB near rochester at a lowes store selling for $8.97, the best price I have seen in a while, but when I went up north the Lowes up there was selling it for $12.99. I asked it the would match their own price and they did as well as giving me an additional 10% comp price off. I used 32 sheets on this project and just by asking I saved about $150.00.
It never hurts to ask.
