Not as dumb as it sounds, Will. It's truly amazing how fast space fills up.

I got all the rest of the material milled up the other day.

 

22pcs. 2 x 6 x 10' 3" rafters

19pcs  2 x 8 x 8' 3" floor joists

about 170' of 2 x 3 purlin mat'l

about 160' of 2 x 4 strapping

enough 3 x 4 and 3 x 7 to make 3 shelves with curved braces.

3 x 6 to brace posts and roof beam

2 x 8 x 13' 6" ridge beams which will get laminated to existing 2 x 8 ridge beam

6 x 6 x 13' posts

4pcs  3 x 9 x 12' 3" floor beams

4 x 6 to support laminated ridge beam

 

PA030292.JPG PA030293.JPG

 

And lots of siding material. 7/8" thick, mostly 10" wide, but there a handful

of 15" wide.

 

PA030294.JPG

 

I also got all the 1" x 9" and 10" wide Hemlock flooring done, and sticker/covered

so it starts drying. In a week or so, after the pine needles have stopped

falling, I'll lay some of that tin on the ground beside the stack, in hopes to

reflect some of the sun's heat at the flooring.

Here's some pics of a 20" hemlock being opened up.

 

PA020282.JPG

 

First cut done, and log stood up, and squared to blade.

 

PA020283.JPG PA020284.JPG

 

Second cut done. After that, it's easy sailing. Sometimes it takes longer to get

to this point, than to turn the rest of the log into sawdust.

 

PA020285.JPG PA020286.JPG

 

Edging some boards that had wane.

 

PA030288.JPG

 

Trimming the last board to thickness. Leftover is 1/8" thick.

 

PA030289.JPG

 

About 3/4's of an hour to yield 10pcs of 1" x 10" x 10' 3"

That's a bit over 80 board feet. Rough cut softwood sells

for about a buck a board foot up here. Well worth the effort

considering I'd pay to have the enjoyment of watching

the wood chips fly.

 

I did take some video too, but I'm having computer grief editing it, and

then I'll have to try to remember how to post it on Utube. Maybe in a few days.

Thanks for looking.

What do you do with the 1/8" thick wood?  That wood is beautiful!

Soak it in water, and laminate it to make skis. :D But that's a whole different story.

Now you've got me thinking, that I should add on to the addition, before it's built. :rolling:  :rolling:

 

That is where I'm screwing up with my shed... I've already got 90% of the floor space assigned.

I managed to steal the last 2 days off work, so I got the tools out

and started to build.

 

First I took the gangplank door off, and cut/removed the bottom of

the siding, to expose the existing floor joists.

Then bolted the 3 x 9 beams in place.

PA080309.JPG

 

Next, notched the top of the posts, and braced them in place.

PA080310.JPG PA080311.JPG

 

Then added the outer floor beams.

PA080312.JPG

 

Floor joists.

PA080313.JPG PA080314.JPG

 

Next I had to remove that little outlook roof. I managed to get the

rafters and purlins off in 2 sections, so I can reuse them.

The outer beam on that roof is slated to sit on top of my new posts.

PA090315.JPG

 

I got the outer beam in place, part of the ridge beam in place, and

the first rafter set. Now I can order the tin steel roofing.

Of course, ELF had to come out, and check out his new pad. :smilewink:

Good thing you had that ledger board on, or he might of made a run for the N Pole!

Coming along very nice. Looks kinda small, though.

Hahahahahaha

Yes, it does, doesn't it.

It'll do for a year or so, then I'll lengthen the hole building.

So I guess you could consider that a sort of "Elf Shelf" then?  And your Massey will be the Elf on the Shelf!

That's a lucky Elf, but the addition won't be big enough when he grows up,  lol
