 When I built my shop ... I used my judgement and commen sence , No code here required for secondary buildings . But that dont mean to cut corners . I have full 2 X 6 walls and 2 X 8 rafters , 2 X 10 ridge , car port is under a 2 X 8 truss , sitting on a 6 X 8 steel beam wich is on 10 X 10 post . Dont think this is going anywhere .

 Sumbodies signiture here is,  "Measure twice, cut once, shim to fit".

  That's the Kentucky windage way to build stuff.  ;D ;D

A few years ago, Delta had a lottery for winning a dinner with Norm and getting to watch a filming of one of his shows.  I didn't win.   :(

On one of Roy Underhill's shows he cuts one of his fingers, I think with a chisel, and then proceded to drip the rest of the show.  They must not have a pause button on their cameras.

If he needed the money, which he don't, I bet ol' Norm could make a mint with a bloopers tape. ;D :D :D

And then you get into rafters that just can't be frailed enough to care about your math. Notice, the big orange hammer. At a certain point (usually with a big hammer in one hand and perched on a ladder 25' up) a fellow begins to realize it must be easier to figure it out first  :D.




I always liked Roy, he sure isn't afraid to show that things don't always go as planned and sometimes you end up bleeding for the craft  ;D. A good carpenter bleeds every day...a bad carpenter bleeds several times a day.

 I'll put Teri up against most home DIY'ers. Just don't ask for small measurements on the ruler.  ::) ::)
