Building our new work shop and train room

Recommended Posts

The trusses are done, starting on the end walls, got one mostly done, a 8x20.

Tomorrow drill the holes for the anchor bolts.

Here are some pictures of that wall, and the tent's. The orange pipe is a 6 inch drain pipe with a 4 inch slit in it for a drain between the tents. It rains every day, some times twice, and at night also, so with out the tents we would have nothing done. They are 20 x20.IMG_0477.JPG.256829da431c9e0fead9cd21741a589a.JPGIMG_0475.JPG.2a8c28de9c3e2fd278bc17451fbd5b65.JPGIMG_0468.JPG.63963d447f5f96226656340f20edb76d.JPGIMG_0473.JPG.ed25c7e29d91d76b4b83a96741b583d0.JPGIMG_0466.JPG.37fcd973b7dfe1a37cb3f20f07a8439c.JPGIMG_0472.JPG.97f71991c32b13aa55dbec45c4f58c40.JPGIMG_0470.JPG.de8310ddeba4ee318aedb5e147bda4cc.JPGIMG_0471.JPG.beec96286a16f9dd87a6c80191d1085e.JPG

The slab workers are supplied with tools from the cement co., CSI, to finish the placement, and results are great.

Yes, that part is definitely worth it and I'll be using them when I do my house slab.

CSI also checks the level and square of the forms before placing the cement.

Tomorrow they will start on the last of 5 walls. It rained cats, dogs, and frogs this afternoon, but the tent prevented it from slowing the work.

The guy in the black hat, and blue shirt is my foreman. He is smoking while applying rugby for the sill seal. We will discuss this at the safety meeting.

The guy watching and not doing anything is the gardener, he was rained out.

The last picture is a U channel, or top/bottom plate. Can not buy here, so they made them from a "C" purlin using a big hammer, and a 4 inch I beam as an anvil.IMG_0479.JPG.b77fcfc5a52152cbd29118762bd47e92.JPGIMG_0484.JPG.f4ff6b27af2ecc90fbf43828e39ace11.JPGIMG_0491.JPG.1921d8567f6dd935080a9c140f26185f.JPGIMG_0494.JPG.778bee971ce882840d9e6ed665aaa5d3.JPGIMG_0493.JPG.b26f34d50c4af244f49289debae4e602.JPGIMG_0495.JPG.37d52e50e55c17007720bd2d1636f423.JPG

Roger, are all of your joints welded, rather than screwed?

All joints are screwed, because I could not locate a torque screw gun, or screw magazines here. Welding is listed as a alternative to screws, I already had a welder, and workers who welded and had built similar structures. Also, screws would be almost impossible in some places. I mentioned that in US, they have a clamp to hold top and bottom plates tight for welding studs in, so they made one from coco of course, when it broke, they made one from steel pipe, and coco shims that worked just fine. Also, each stud is welded at 6 places on top, and another 6 on bottom plate. They form a "box", so each is now a lateral brace. Screwed steel, or wood studs need lateral bracing. The basic 8 foot, and 11 foot rooms are taking form.

The black spots are not yet steel brushed and painted welds.

Skyman, The reason I put the rebar where I did was because of this PDF on seismic considerations, and wind loads in hurricane and earth quake zones.
"IRC
 Figure R301.2(3).  Specifying 2,500 psi refers to a measure of the concrete’s compressive strength.  To enable a concrete foundation to resist all of the possible loads to which it may be exposed, compressive strength needs to be complimented with tension capacity.  Since concrete is unable to resist tension stresses without cracking, steel reinforcing bars are
added to resist tension.  Reinforcing is particularly valuable when resisting cyclic earthquake loads because, within the span of a few seconds, the loads may start by causing compression and then reverse to cause tension in the same location. " 

This is the 3rd edit I have had to do as it keeps splinting the written post with the pictures, and changing the I to a i!

I think you meant, "All joints are welded", right?

I was thinking about how screwed up the posting is today, and it found it's way onto the post. Ha!

and you see that g at the bottom? I removed that 2 times, but there it is.

The frame is up. wall panels are on, tent is down, trusses going up, waiting on roof panels, so put tent walls over trusses. Picture # 7 is a franken tube made from scraps, so not much waste. NOTE! The post is sorting my pictures by number, not as I posted them.

I should have said all of MY joints are screwed.

Too late now of course, but instead of pounding out all of the small tabs out on your C purlins to make your U channels, I'd have just cut 2 slots in them 2 inches apart at each place you want a stud.  Then bent that small tab up.  Lots less work I think.  Coming along nicely though.  Still building those megatonage trusses I see.
