Day 1: Max helped by getting in the way. Here I am (I KNOW! A picture of ME!) putting the washers and nuts on the all-thread through the plates that the walls will sit on.
Day 2: Wall one. Oh, and the beam in the middle which will hold the horizontal beam. Also notice the header for a future door:
Day 3: Wall two.
Day 4: Beginning the opening for the 12-ft garage door. Just need to build the head beam. He also put in the landing for the staircase:
Day 5: Prepping the wall in the back:
Day 6 & 7 nothing got done.
Day 8: Header for the garage door built and in place:
Day 9 & 10 nothing got done, too rainy. That brings us up-to-date, believe it or not. Day 10 was yesterday, Monday the 23rd.
