Ongoing Shed Construction in Albert Canyon

Ryan and Cameron lead the initiative to get the floor joists in…..and we reached another milestone with the installation of all the joists. Next the plywood floor was nailed in place (Ryan wasn’t very keen on the $80 per sheet price tag on the plywood). The shed will be 10 x 12….with a 4 ‘ covered deck on front. We installed the floor boards for the deck.

The wood we are using is all rough cut timbers (where a 2 x 4 is actually 2 x 4) from a local mill in Revelstoke. The boards it the pink/orange tint are BC fir. We are paying about $7 for a 2 x 6 x 12 board of BC fir . I can’t imagine what that would cost back in Ontario where Home Depot is charging $8 for a poplar or spruce 2 x 4 (not really….1 1/2 x 3 1/2 x 8). The only downside is the weight of the boards. They will not be blowing away!

Very wet day today in Albert Canyon. We worked in the rain till lunch to make some progress as the “clock to return home” is moving along. More pictures to follow….but all four walls are up and 9 of 12 trusses are in place….so we made some good progress.
