That was some good exercise, yes it was. All of that took about 3 hours. Just need to get the OSB and assemble the flooring, might nee...

7/16" osb Now will my shed be able to hold 63x 4x8s? I will be able to pick up the OSB on the 23rd, the earliest. Seems to me like a OSB investment. Like some people buy gold?

Going to buy the shotgun tomorrow and talk to them tomorrow. If they have a problem with something, it's best if they let me know if I can help resolve it instead of hiding in the bush and killing people. Tried to buy one today, but the town I went to didn't sell any. Suspect you have a Mental diso...

Re: Boost 110v AC to 120v AC or slightly more

I am not a welding expert but a 110V welder seems a little dinky to me. Do you have 220V?. Get a real welder. See lots for sale. Also make sure grounds are all good. Wire between circuit breaker and welder should be proper gauge.
