Dawn again here on the homestead, and already my head hurts. The math for rafters on an architectural plan are straightforward. When the architect is a low budget homesteader using old pallets… it gets a bit harder.
The first order of the day is to get the walls finished, and all the openings planned out. When I began this project I drew a pretty picture of what the coop would look like. Then someone (me) threw a pallet into the finely oiled machinery of “the plan” and well… that’s a smoking heap now. So we are once again left with flying by the seat of our pants
Now it’s on to the laying boxes. I was able to map them from a single piece of the plywood I have. (Another rusty skill)
To build them I have attached strapping to the bottom plate board.
When that was done the walls went up, followed by vertical supports.
Until next time…
