Framing lumber receives 2 coats of primer

I apply two coats of Zinnser Bullseye 123 Primer (white or gray) before assembly. The flooring system and at least the bottom two (2) inches of framing will receive primer.


Accurate to within 1/64 of an inch

John sets up the saw table, it's 13 feet long. We'll cut the lumber accurate to within 1/64" of an inch.


Shed build begins

208 8-foot 2" x 4"s arrive Friday.

Saturday I grade and sort the 2" x 4"s. About 2/3 will make excellent framing, that is, 7-foot lengths (on right). One third (on left) is downgraded for other (shorter) uses. The are stacked to air dry.
