    Finished the west end gable wall stud framing on the scissor trusses. Have I mentioned that I hate scissor trusses. Son says their are a a pain in the *** also now.
    East wall to do tomorrow. Will be a bit easier than the west wall. Studs are needed to attach the OSB on both sides of the walls as well for insulation.

    You're not quite done cursing those rafters yet... you're about to find out they don't have as much room for insulation at the bottom edge too. You'll need the blocking to maintain airflow to the eave vents.

    We are doing ridge cap vents along the entire 60'. No soffit vents. One gable wall vent each end.Pretty dry country here and very little humidity. All my buildings are done the same way. Never had a interior drip. Told the son it is up to him to do the insulation in the ceiling.

    Have to say building with wood is so much faster than building with used rusted metal. Measure, mark, cut, grind, fit up, mark again, grind other surface, measure, mark and then weld it. Then add in the equation of one person doing it, go up ladder clamp tape measure off move ladder to other side go back up ladder, measure then mark go back down and repeat other side for squareness. Getting me dizzy typing this

    My son does not like getting on a ladder much. So it goes a bit slower. Today we 3 of us so that helped some. I did most of the cutting and handing them up stuff to nail. Had to do the top of the exterior gable peak as it was a bit too high for him. He says today that this shop build is the most he has been on a ladder all his life.
