This has been the most productive construction day so far on the Outback Shack. I installed the roof supports.
Next I screwed in the timber for the cupboard down this end and for the lounge down the far end.
The long walls were a bit of a handful, but I devised a bracing technique to hold things together.
The second wall goes on followed by an end panel.
I must now decide on the final position for the door before putting the last end panel on. The windows, cupboards, paint, wheels and finishing touches can then be applied.
The Outback Shack is progressing at a moderate tempo. The frame uprights are insitu.
As are the upper rails of the frame.
I used metal bracing corners bent into the appropriate angle to fix the long rails. I struggled with this for a while before inventing what I call "The 2nd set of hands" which will be featured in the film I am making about the construction of the Outback Shack.
The eventual feel of the micro shelter is becoming easier to imagine now.
