Building A Garage

The delivery guy dropped off a package on Tuesday afternoon. It was 9 large boxes and 1 small one on a triple long pallet.

Here's the boxes, unloaded and partially opened. That's a lotta parts!

First step is to do some assembly, lay down the foundation and put up the corners, main pillars and support beams. It's important brace the walls as at this point it can be blown down by a strong wind.

Slot A goes into Tab B and then attach the doohickey with alternating thingies. Got it. Wait...what?? I'm a guy. I hate instructions.

The 2 main trusses. They had to be assembled piece by piece by piece. There were a lot of parts.

This is where we left off yesterday. Most of the main supports are in and the trusses and roof beams are assembled and ready to install. That's what we'll be working on today along with putting on the exterior sides. We're still several days away from a completed garage.

More tomorrow.

Hey, I know I've seen this before, but I'm still glad to see you updating here on Weasels. You are too funny to keep it from the masses that avoid political conflict:)

Oh man, that looks like a lot of work! We had our garage renovated last year. Between me and two friends, we completed the project in one week.

Ooh, looks like a tough job was on your way. I assume that everything’s fine now since it’s been a year since this post. How’s the garage? I wish to see the fruits of your hard work. =)
