BLUESCOPE STEEL FRAMES FOR THE BEDROOMS
Here is another update on my project Follow the Build Part 6.
You would have read in Follow the Build Part 5 which was all about iron bark posts and beams.
Now I’ve always been a timber man when it comes to framing. I started out as an apprentice building frames by hand. Cutting all the the studs on a super saw, marking out the top and bottom plates and knocking them together with 3 inch bullet heads and hammer. But for this job through my mates at Macdonald Jones Homes, I was convinced to use Bluescope steel frame.
I got to say it was a lot easier. It all came pre made as you would find in timber truss and frame but so much lighter and easier to handle. All frames went up in a day and the roof trusses on day 2.
I had us fastening, tidying up the frames and finishing off. The frames and trusses a already straight and square making go together like clockwork in 2 ½ days and better still no rot or termite damage.
Well that’s it for the moment folks. Keep following the build and let me know your thoughts via my Scotty Cam Facebook Page.
Won’t be long till the next update so stay tuned for part 7 coming very soon…
