Ground beams and joists

With the foundations done and the site prepared the last bits of strutural timber arrives just in time. I had planned to put in the ground beams and joists and lay the OSB Floor and then put the wall on the floor but that would mean insulating the floor now wth a great risk of the whole lot getting rained on. So I have tweeked the design so the floor can be laid after the building is watertight. That feels so much better.

Putting in the ground beams and loists was easy but took a while tweeking everything so it is square and level. It seems as though you go around doing that all day but in the end we got it acceptably good.

Then we laid a temporary floor to build the walls on a perfect flat surface it made the whole thing so easy.
