After Maker Faire I decided to setup the 8×8 building in our backyard. Since it will be there for a while I did a permanent setup, bolting everything together through the pre-punched holes instead of using the tie down straps. It took just under three hours for me to setup by myself (there wasn’t any wind).
I used partly buried concrete piers and leveled the 4x4s on them. Then I placed the floor panels on the 4x4s.
Then the wall base flashing was screwed to the floor panels.
Next I assembled the walls.
As each wall was completed the u channel top cap was installed.
Then the roof is set in place. It is held on with Dual Lock – sort of an industrial strength Velcro.
Once the roof was on, the walls were bolted down and the doors went on.
Finally, the windows, vents, and side wall top covers were installed.
I started assembling the building at about 9am Saturday morning. By noon it was complete and it was time to relax.
