Week 4: Basic Carpentry

Basic Carpentry

Assembling the northern knee wall

Using the combination miter chopsaw (I want one!) with a stop set up to mass produce pieces for the wall .

Assembling the southern side of the double stud ridge wall.

Preparing to lift the north side of the double stud ridge wall up onto the roof. The sections are brought up with the bottom plate side up then tilted into place.

Aligning the wall section in order to raise and attach it to the built up ridge plate.

Making some corrections when we realized we made the south wall too tall (luckily not too short!)

The frame with both walls for the clerestory up, read to take rafters!
