Construction Of The Tying/gear Shed Has Started.

Discussion in 'Fly Tying' started by Mark Walker, Apr 3, 2012.

  1. I couldn't find the original thread reference from some time in Feb. so I'll start this.
    Anyone interested can follow the progress.
    Suggestions welcomed.

    1. A friend and I begin layout
    2. Shooting the "el"
    3. Shovel work
    4. 12 90lb bags of concrete/6 piers with 4' bracket. (cost...$92)
    5. Piers set!

  2. Looking good! It all starts at the bottom!
  3. Does that tying space have a cot in the floor plan?
  4. I had actually given some thought to one of those single "loft bed/desk" units. I could alway use the overheadbed space for storage or..........
  5. Don't forget the fridge, microwave and porta-potty. Sometimes this might be your "doghouse". Oh, and tunes! 'Gotta have something to listen to. Plus laptop and wireless so you can check out those how-to videos on You-Tube.
    This sounds just like fly fishing. Get something new and it's not the end, just the incentive to get something else new! (which can lead to the need for the "dog house")
  6. A fold down bunk. Storage area, bed or fold up to the wall.
  7. Picked up the electrical permit from the city Monday ($30, good for 6 mo.) and the lumber/reflective wrap/30#felt ($803.44) excluding the siding and roofing. Decided to go with 26ga sheet metal for the roof in Forest Green. Stacked everything on the covered patio with Seattle cow pissin' on a flat rock rain forcasted for Tue/Wed.
    Thursday, we got this done;

    Clouds/thunder rolled in again in the afternoon so I bolted to HD for 2.5gal of 123 primer ($29). Got everything primered, dryed and covered with tarps. More rain for today...............

    Rear wall is at 10', front wall at 8', roof peak will be at 12'. "Saltbox" design with 5' extended out at the 8' ceiling height from the rear wall for overhead storage.

  9. Yeah looks Seattle rainy there. Nice framework.
  10. Mark--
    It is certainly "Hell for stout..."!! No sweat when "the big one" hits!

  11. Look'n good Mark!

    We're all envious of your weather.
  12. Yesterday's progress erected the last wall, rafter degree/pitch figured and placement. This was fun with just two of us.

  13. OK! Now get that roof on before the rains come.

    What kind of construction site is this? I don't see any empty beer bottles laying around.

  14. Luckily for me, my friend started AA recently or the beer would have cost more than the materials! Whiskey for me after all is done.
    Would you believe I sucked the saw dust out of the grass with the shop vac?:D 1shed16.jpg

    This ain't pretty, but works. Was the last thing we did!

  15. That looks great. If I lived closer, I'd give you a hand while I'm off work for the next couple months. That is the kind of projects I like to take on also.
  16. Curses....FOILED again!
    This is how I really FELT!

  17. Good heavens there is so many different ways we could run with that one Mark. Nice looking fly shack there.
  18. Good grief Mark...Are those really 2x8 roof joists...?? What would "they" require if there was a potential for a snow load!! Looks good!
  19. No, the ridge beam is the only 2x8. The ends are notched making the 2x6 joists look like they're bigger.
  20. No Sky lights?
