The Joiner I served part of my apprenticeship under was the most bombastic, blunt, brutal man I think I've ever met, if he saw me make a half-crown, he'd snatch the hammer from me, threaten to do all sorts of nastiness with it, and finish off with shouting at the top of his considerable voice "THE NEXT TIME I SEE YOU . . ."It's a long time since I heard (we don't want any half-crowns showing)
There was a vid I saw a bit back showing the true differences between standard 'manual' nails and nail gun nails, and the suggestion on the vid was the proper nails were considerably superiour in application for putting together frames.I didn't have a nail gun for this build. I debated getting one earlier on, but given the small build and the fact I've not fencing projects or anything coming up soon it seemed like quite an expense.
From what I remember - the first few nails (that photo) were a bit rough, but once a few have been sunk the frame has a bit of rigidity to itself. Plus once you can kneel/stand on it it was much easier.
Hand nailing was fine, other than starting off of each frame. Sore hands after though.
Nah, I decided not to do the walls in the end. Just the roof.Did you add insulation in the wall panels? There was no rush to put OSB on inside as you could have just put the membrane on the outside to weatherproof it in a couple of hours.
nice steady build though.
