We're nearly ready to shake the shack now with the addition of several more components this past weekend. Justin has been a busy man painstakingly nailing and bolting in dozens of clips and plates. He has the splinters to show for it. And we have only broken one $16 drill bit so far with this project.
Here's a rundown of the past week:
A new structural wall: Believe it or not, those ceiling joists were just nailed in with no structural support under them. Now they've got twin 2x6s to rest on and take a load off.
This corner bracket is going to keep that beam from sliding off the posts.
Our footings are secured to the posts now.
These wee little blue screws are holding the pony wall to the stem wall.
