Dun ta da dun! (Otherwise known as Trumpet sounds.)
While I spent my day vacuuming and shampooing carpets (for 8 hours and I missed/skipped two rooms), Robert was working on putting up walls on The Shed. Adam helped with a few walls, and I helped on one. Robert discovered that cheap nails are not a good idea. For every one nail he got in, at least 5 bent and broke on him. He was very happy to use the last of that box and happily went and bought more expensive, better quality nails, and was rewarded with all of those nails going in as they were supposed to.
One wall up.
Putting up walls.
Getting ready to cut the door hole out on one side, then another sheet of T1-11 went up and he cut the other side.
Ready for a roof. Too bad an open roof is not practical.
08/19/2012 - The Shed has walls! The window hole still needs to be cut out, but the next task is putting a roof on it before Oregon rainy season starts.
