thats great work but that timber will rot.. it wont matter that you painted it, timber used outside needs to be treated. especially ones that make contact with the ground moisture will get through the timber which wont withstand.
Wow as a newbie you inspired me to give this a try. Having my jigsaw and all the basic tools ie: hammer lol I can actually do this gazebo. Still learning the lingo with regards to the cuts you made in constructed the roof. Gave me the idea to build my two pups their outdoor dog house. Start smaller and work my way to the gazebo. Thanks again for simple and easy to follow VIDEO!!! KEEP up the great job!!🙌🙌🙌😀🙌🙌🙌
I saw the roof frame put together and thought: that was brilliant because I assembled mine high in the air one piece at the time. Why haven't I thought of that! I imagined the empty roof frame will be lifted to the roof but then plywood is added and I thought: maybe the shingles are the heaviest and plywood is heavy but can do. But then the shingles were added on the spot and I thought: ahoh...How are you going to get them on now....Nice job anyway. We all get lost or carried away occasionally. :)
You did not put flashing on your gable edge going to the peak. and ran the Comp to the edge of your cedar fascia. Why, why, why? You can always slip some flashing in under the edge, as a partial fix. Personally I buy the 10' brown vinyl gutter downspouts (2+"x3+") and cut in half and half again lengthwise, and use each of the 4 90 deg angle pieces as 40' of flashing. For about $4. You can fix it on with liquid nail or small 'hard to see' colored brads. If it had beeb done before the comp you could have used pan head screws on the roof. Also you could have made an insulation radiant barrier, suspended inside the roof with an air gap & a neat Fabric Canopy with that reflective film floated above the fabric in the large air gap; It would keep the Gazebo way cooler in sunlight.
If lumber is laid on side for floor support is it really still a "joist"? If so what is the lumber named that support them? I am thinking they are more "planks" or is that reserved for boards walked on one at a time? Man all this terminology! Joists rafters beams posts headers sheeting and so much more! But it seems like some effort ought to be made to call a component by its real name....no?
only thing I can think of that was a bit wrong is that when you start to lay the shingles down you want your first layer upside down so there are no uncovered spots due to the spacings in the panels. other than that great job!
God damn I hate jigsaws. Don't know why, but they've always been my least favourite power tool, so much so that my current jigsaw is a near 40yo black and decker, because I hate it so much, I barely use it. I'd rather use a hand saw that a jigsaw. That tiny drill has some power too by the looks, it can't be more than, what, 10v? Crazy, I have an 18v that would only just be as powerful as that thing.
Good on you, YouTube. I didn't get a notification, and this hasn't been in my subs feed. It just popped up now in recommended. Far out. Such an awesome channel and a really good host, awesome presentation and I love the projects, which are usually relevant to what I'm planning to do, or I'm doing, and now I can't even watch them when they come out :/
Great video, like all your others, actually :-) One question: you said you are not a fan of pressure treated wood. How long do you think it will take before moisture gets inside the wood and affects it? How rainy is your area? I ask because I myself want to build a small shed and have crazy talks with my colleagues about wood on ground / rotten wood ...
The hammer your using is way to big for you I think this is why you are having trouble with it... I had the same problem with the hammer that I had and so dad bought me a smaller hammer and since then I am able to use it from the end where you are meant to use it and not in the middle like that as you are losing half of your hitting force holding it there and thus making your wrist ache more. Smaller hammer smaller Handel that's what Dad got me and since then I am doing a lot better even to the point I can hit the nail with one hit some times and drive it home 😹😹😹
But what your building is looking great so far 😸😸😸
Great video. I prefer treated lumber for such projects, but each to their own. The only recommendation I would have is that you not seal the ends of the posts. Water will soak into the wood, even painted wood, over time, and gravity will pull the water down. With no way to easily disperse into the surrounding soil it will rot rather rather quickly. Even when concreting, leave the end of the wood exposed to the soil. Of course since you don't use treated lumber you may have other issues, but I'm not professional. Otherwise, great project. Can't wait to see it finished.
I could tell how disappointed you were about the roof. You looked like you could cry, which would have been my response, peppered with copious amounts of cursing. But I admire your sunny attitude in the face of such challenges. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product. I'm sure it'll be awesome!
Scott: Agreed about the starter course, and also that this is a cool little structure. I also agree that common sense would have the drip edge under the felt at the eave for the reasons that you gave. I put it over the felt, then add a layer of ice & water shield which laps over the drip edge. Forgot to mention that tiny little detail [cringing in embarrassment].
No matter what, kudos to Linn and anybody else who's out there doing it instead of sitting around wishing about it!
+Rich Dowd If you put your drip edge over the felt on the bottom (eve) edge, any water that gets through the shingles will presumably flow over the felt, but then get trapped under and behind the drip edge. Some of the water will get trapped behind there and promote rot, and the rest of it will drip down behind the metal and onto the facia board, rather than over the drip edge and away from the building. If you do a quick Google image search of "How to install drip edge" you will see the proper configuration.
Another thing that is good to also consider is that it is best to lay down a starter row under your first regular shingles. You cut the tabs off of this first row and just nail down the solid top portion, so that water can't drip down between the tabs and onto the underlayment.
Anyway, this is a cool little outdoor structure, not high stakes, but just wanted to share in the conversation. Thanks as always, Linn!
Great idea. I only will use Timberline shingles they hold up well. One little tid bit you can take or leave it . On the drip edge. The length at the bottom edge goes under the tarpaper then there should be drip edge running down the fly rafters over top of the tarpaper. Even if rain blew in under the shingles the substrate wont get wet. And you should cut starter shingle to run over the edges after the dripedge is installed the sticky tar strip will hold the very edge of the shingles down so they dont flap in the wind. Most people dont realize how much weight shingles add to a structure. All in all great job
Linn that looks great so far. I thought the way you did the inside of the roof was a great 👍 idea 💡. The idea of the seating is a very good idea. Just seeing what you have done so far makes me want to build one of my own. I won't be able to for some time with me being on a fixed income. Well I wish you luck with the rest of the build.
Thanks for sharing
Hey Lynn. Love your video's but I have a question about the roofing??? Not that you need any more weight to the roof, but how come you did not install a starter course for your shingles. I would be concerned about the bottom rows where the shingles butt together. Not a major concern for an outdoor gazebo, but just to avoid water damage.
Keep up the good work!
Great project, Linn! My wife and I will likely be using a design similar to yours at our new house. One question though...why did you choose to use nails in the base instead of screws? With weather-based expansion/contraction possibly being an issue with nails, and the ease of installation of screws, ... Just curious on your thoughts.
your amazing this who dislike thus video must be guy who thinks that girl can't do anything but house work, miss you killed it, keep doing you and tell us guys to look out because the woman will take our job. always love seeing, girl are not afraid to get those hand dirty.
