First up, the floor. Here you can see a 4×4’ square of plywood in the background, which will be the floor of the duck house, plus another full sheet of thinner plywood in the foreground, to be cut for a couple of walls:
I want to use 2×2” boards for the corner studs, but don’t have any on hand, so I made some: I “ripped” (cut lengthwise) a couple of 2×4 boards to make 2x2s:
Here I used a chalk string line to mark where to cut the plywood for the roofline:
After cutting; there are actually two identical walls stacked here. These will be the front and back (aka west and east) walls:
The front wall with studs laid in position, and the duck door marked:
Several cut pieces of plywood, including the front wall on top of the floor in the background, and the back wall, shelf, and dividers in the foreground:
Next weekend I’ll start assembling the pieces.
