Wall #4!

46 hours of work later, I have four walls!

It only took about 36 hours to cut all the pieces and nail them together, but then you add in clean-up, help, trips to the hardware store, and some math and head-scratching. Keep in mind though I don’t keep track of every trip to the hardware store, just the ones that take more than an hour. Plus the countless hours I spent planning out every stud, which is what took up my building time this summer. I still have the little side wall of the bump-out to build, but I’ll worry about that later; it’s only about two feet wide.

Setting up for the fourth wall.

And done!

And done!

For the rest of the week I’m either working or it’s supposed to rain, but I’m having some people over this weekend for the wall raising! Fingers crossed it all goes well!

Now I have to find a shower stall, order my door, and figure out how to drill a bolt-sized hole in the trailer flange to secure my porch post…

P.S. That last piece of roofing came in. 🙂
