I was amazed to find that the construction of a frame begins with two bits of wood, lying on the ground, joined together by a metal rectangle covered with prongy things!

I soon got into the swing of things and developed quite a talent for drilling holes in the bottom of the frame
with the trusty De Walt............... um....... did I say the bottom of the frame?
Never mind - perhaps nobody will notice a few extra airholes along the top!

that the lintel is supposed to go over the top of the door?

At last all four walls are upright - and I just can't wait to see what the views are like from the windows!

Yes, I know it's just a garage, but a pleasant view is quite a bonus and I'm more than happy with these.
