Because we are actually fighting gravity when sheathing vertically, Guillaume came up with a clever ways to cheat it: just use some scrap 2×4’s to create stoppers.

In hopes that our framing was all nice and square!

    I only discovered this blog yesterday (3/9/15), and I read a few entries when I get the chance. Started from the beginning and everything. 🙂 I’m enjoying reading about your adventures so far. I’m an author, and my current book revolves around tiny house living. You’re proving to be excellent inspiration, as well as a font of information. Thanks!
