The barn framing is getting close to being finished! I’ve got all of the roof and wall sheathing on, and nailed according to spec. I need to install some Simpson anchors under the upstairs roof, a bit of blocking downstairs, and then I should be ready for a framing inspection! I’m excited! 🙂
This weekend I used up my second fifty pound box of 5,000 eight-penny nails. I’ve also used about three-fourths of a box of sixteen-penny nails, a third of a box of ten-penny, and a few small boxes of galvanized nails in various sizes. Not to mention about 8 pounds of those little framing connector nails.
