    Thank you, but I did not understand what you mean?
    Here
    - the lower frame of the frame structure
    - fastenings and connections
    - "slanting strips" are not installed
    - waterproofing

    Why did you knotch the inside of the lag bolts...........I understand knotching the outside to give the runner extra support, but why knotch the inner side...............

    You mean like there is no solid foundation?

    Concrete blocks on gravel is no way to build anything

    Only thing I can see there is that he's gonna put in more runners later...........predrill some more runners and slide them onto the lag bolts...........but he's using 6 x 6's notched for support runners......within only a couple of feet from each other.......which would only make sense if he's planning on storing some very heavy stuff on that side..........

    You could do this with 6 x 6's and notch 3 sides and only use one for the outer wall.......

    On the ceiling joists ....you could notch 2 sides and wouldn't need the extra wood on the outside and do the same thing....

    He's putting 4 x 8's across the main crest......then cutting them to a pitch......You cold just span it with a 2 x 10 on both sides and then run roof rafters off of that...........

    He did concrete forms into the ground..........to the frost line......which we can't see........then anchored some 2 x's into it....and did a square frame on the concrete post on the edges of the concrete pour..........

    You can put those in during the concrete pour and put the 6 x 6 directly on the center of the concrete pour.

    Concrete footer with a sona tube.........You can attach footer to it............need to did a bigger hole........set the sona tubes with tech screws.............Set them in the ground..........get your elevation and use a water level.....laser level or a level line to get all the heights uniform.............Then carefully cut the height with a razor knife...........

    No he said they were concrete blocks on a "clay pillow" Post #18

    And if you don't sink a footing below the frost line it is worthless
