DIY Man Cave / She Shed – Part 7 – Installing The Rafters

DIY Man Cave / She Shed – Part 7 – Installing The Rafters

I construct the framework for the roof using pressure treated C18 construction timber 75 x 47mm.

I fix these together using Turbogold PZ double-countersunk screws 5 X 100mm:

It doesn't matter if you make a mistake if you can fix it, or replace something and use the bits else where. I think there may be a few shed projects coming up soon. Atb.

Great little tip about supporting the long lengths of timber. I hadn't thought of that, like having an extra pair of hands or two!

Have a look on eBay etc for a belt clip for your impact driver. They are usually available for very little cost, I got them for my drill and driver and it allows you to hang them off your pocket or pouch belt, makes life a lot easier especially when working on a step/ladder when you need to free up a hand. Also worth buying a tool beltl, comes in very handy, saves a lot of time fetching screws and allows you to take your various tools with you and have somewhere to put them. Finally a nice little stocking fillerfrom Santa is a magnetic wristband. Ideally for keeping screws to hand.

She is coming a long a treat, it won't be going anywhere anytime soon!

Personally I would've fitted the rafters at full length, used a chalk line to mark them in a straight line in position and cut them with a circ saw as it would be quicker.

Other than that tho you're doing a fantastic job 😁

Tony Matthews says:

Awesome, and you really do make it look soo easy.
I would not have thought of putting those temporary beem holders in place.
Thanks for posting.
