Garage 20 x 24 ft

Finished garage.

Finished garage.

A friend was having this garage built so I, and another friend, gave him a helping hand. He had already arranged for the concrete pad to be poured, doing a lot of that preparation work himself. He arranged for a garage kit from Central Home Improvement to be delivered. Kits are fully equipped to build a garage although the homeowner should review materials list with builder to prevent extra trips back to cover any “extras” that the homeowner may add.

Yes, its been 10 days but the weather hasn’t always co-operated either. Then there’s weekends…all that’s left is the gate and to cut off the tops of the posts. Interestingly, the sound around the pool has changed. Its a lot more crisp and clear.

A friend asked for some help in building a custom fence around their pool. They found a fence design on the Internet that they wanted duplicated.

A couple section to the rear are 5 ft. And yes…that is one BIG German Shepherd dog!

Baby barn 16 x 12 ft

Baby barn finish building.

Baby barn finish building.

A client asked for some help with a baby barn. Its dimensions are 16 ft long, 12 ft wide and 10 ft high at the collar tie on the truss. The chord length of the trusses are all 54-3/4 inches with 22-1/2 miter cut. The collar tie is a 8ft with the angle cut to tie into the top two chords. Trusses are to be nailed into the top plate of the 5 ft wall. That will make the roof flush with the side but I think we will flare out the roof to match the gable overhang of 6 inches.
