The lintel over the windows of the back wall of the garage was constructed in one continuous 8.5metre piece. It was made up of two vertical 90mm by 38mm CLS timber with an 11mm OSB board sandwiched in the middle and topped with another 90mm by 38mm timber lying flat. All was glued and screwed together as per instructions in our Structural Engineer’s report.

We also made the same sandwich construction of two 89mm by 38mm CLS and 11mm OSB to make the corner posts (4 of them) to allow maximum connective forces when we join the walls together.

The air nailing gun is not working!! oh drat! o bugger!

We fell back to good old Turbo Gold screws!
