We are as happy and excited over your progress as you are! But as Randy mentioned--Be Careful!

Do you have a well or water on site yet? Maybe you are not as OCD as me but I would wash any clay/dirt off the beams before I start enclosing it...

I do not have a well drilled.yet. I do plan to pressure wash the frame and the slab before I close it in. I might even paint the frame with black dryfall paint.

I'll haul water with a 250 gallon tote.

I've made mention that my eave purlins do not have the needed holes punched in them at all. I hand drilled one purlin so far. I think I have about 60 or so 9/16 holes that need to be drilled.

Broke down and bought a mag drill.

I've drilled enough so far to have a workable pattern to go off of. I'll mark and drill the remaining eave purlins on the ground for both ease and safety.

I ordered a Evolution Evomag28 drill.

I probably could have called the building supplier and had the properly punched parts sent but I only have this equipment for a little over another three weeks so I'm going to work with what I have.

I assume they make a thousand at a time and it would be pretty hard to screw-up that many.

Call them anyway Just in case you are not seeing the whole picture or you are missing a page in the manual.

Once you start removing metal its not all that easy to put back.

And, to let them know that there is at least one mistake. You might get a little money back, if you keep track of your time to fix it. You paid good money for a Kit that is turn key put together.
