Lay Out + Square a Structure Ep4

Squaring your structure might be the most critical step of a build. If you’re off on this part, it’s going to get worse the further down the line you go. It's amazing to think that this build has gone from being a series of string lines to a completed structure.

This build is house and garage that are attached. The house is 48’x48’ with 18 foot sidewalls. The garage is 56’x40’ with 10 foot sidewalls.

When you’re doing this by yourself, it’ll take more effort to check and re check every corner, etc. Paul used this website and it's calculators to double check his math. Check out Learn Framing if you want to try it yourself.
