I hear your footsteps through the wall

So I framed these out solo.  Kristen and Will helped me get them upright.  Would do it differently and plan my sections better next time.  I didn’t “cap off” ends that would be (and were) totally wonky when trying to get them vertical.  Anyway, it came out well.  Never underestimate how handy a come-along or ratchet tie-down strap can be, as well as using 3″ screws to pull your framing together after you’ve nailed in a few more studs, and realize that the one you nailed 5 minutes ago is a little separated from the framing.  I’d also do better planning next time–I used a lot of wood to hit 4′ for the sheathing and stuff.  Ah well, I’m psyched.

  3. I guess I should have been more clear… I am using the tank to treat the grey water before discharging it, using plants and such. Kind of like a living machine/Eco-Machine/constructed wetland deal. Not to bathe in, I just cant swing that. Although rain water will likely be the source for bathing water anyway…
