Standing the walls
Section 12.1. Standing the walls
You will need a bit of a hand to stand the walls.
The next part will take three people (just to make things easier) but only for a few minutes.
Lift the rear wall and position it in place.
Have one person balance the rear wall, while the other two people lift a side wall into position.
Use a couple of clamps to hold the two walls together.
You can now make the third person redundant. Send him home before he eats all the cake!
Lift the other side wall into position and hold it in place with another couple of clamps. Likewise with the front wall.
Section 12.2. Fixing the walls together
A short nail with a large flat head used for securing roofing felt, plasterboard, sheet metal to wood etc. at the corners through the front and rear wall studs into the side wall studs.
Use 4″ (100mm) Covered with a protective coating of zinc. flathead nails. Four at each corner.
Also nail the bottom plates to the All the floor frame under the floor sheets, including the floor joists and the bearers. where possible.
