Peter and Ryan helped me assemble the first wall today.
Peter got started cutting while Ryan brought him boards.
I put the cut boards into place.
Then we nailed it all together and squared it up.
We covered the framing with 7/16″ OSB sheathing.
We then stapled on a vapor barrier.
We plan to erect the wall using two 2-ton-rated 20ft chain hoists hanging from the steel frame using slings and hooked into anchor points on the wall.
The anchor points are heavy-duty 1/2″ D-rings attached with 3/8″ x 5″ structural lag screws driven through the OSB into the 4×6 LVL header.
