Thanks...great suggestion. In larger repairs, I have purchased furnace filters, pulled off the backing to the wire and pushed it into the hole, and used a can of foam to fill in before applying cement or plaster to fill in the hole OR I have taken 2 pieces of thin wood strapping, placed them behind the wall, screwed them into place, cut a piece of drywall out, measured to the holes requirements, then tape the sides and plaster, and lastly, removing the screws that held the wood straps in place. Again, great suggestion.
Disappointed that it didn't show the roof and a final photo. Rick made it seem very easy which is an encouragement. Thanks for sharing.
Warning: In Canada, check the building code, cause in Canada, gravel and cement has to go under the shed to discourage mice and rats but bumble bees. I liked the idea of staining but, then again, if the shed rests on cement or even cement blocks (which mite be illegal in Canada), there should be less moisture. Thanks also for the tip to use the glue between the plywood. Didn't think of that one.
Is the foundation completely made of cement or just the perimeter and cement under piers and then filler?
I was wondering how the roof rafters were going to set down...never saw it this way before?
I don't trust the plugs, like, how much weight will the bench take before it pulls out? I think I mite add 2 legs underneath and cover the legs. Or, maybe make a longer bench that sits independently on the floor I wonder if a person could use bolts that I could nut on the other side?
Do you pat the top of the cement to bring up the moisture or spray it quickly with water or just smooth it out ?
You did 2 walls up about 14 " but when they are completed do you go to the 3rd wall? Or, do you finish those 2 walls completely before going to the 3rd wall?
I learned something new. And, that is to put thinset under 2 x4's and in between seams. I don't know why I have never done this before as it makes perfect sense. I would just tape over (for regular drywall). No doubt it makes the tape set straight instead of sucking in. Is that regular roof nails you used?
It would not hurt to have vapour between the studs and backerboard...makes sense. But, if one was to use backerboard, should one do a coating of cement over the entire surface and let it dry before applying the grout and tile, etc?
