    Awesome! I saved the post for later. I think it's a little late for us, seeing as to how we are probably at the halfway point of wall panels, with the exception of our end walls which should be semi-perm. walls.


    Thanks for the great info!

    Yes that was a very detailed description. Thanks! The second half I had to re read simply because I haven't heard some of those terms before lol. But it definitely sounds stable your way!

    Had to come back to the thread to double check something. I could've SWORN that you said 94", lol. I was thinking.. um.. that's not lining up.

    Anyways, just thought I'd let you know we're implementing your wall scheme for our end caps. We're building a solid wall and making a door in another section of the building. The three vert's with OSB should be much stronger than the other setup for an exterior wall.

    Thanks again.

    I made a frame outta 2x4's laying flat. 2 vertical 8' boards with 3 horizontals that are 41" long each. The horizontals placed at the top, bottom, and center. The OSB is shifted 1 3/4" so that way it creates a tongue and groove effect. I used something like 64 sheetrock screws per panel(double sided). It is a slow process to build one but I always looked at it as I could take it apart easily and reuse the material else where if needed. Stick 3 screws on each side of the joint and its pretty stout. Run a short brace at the top of the panel in the corners and it is pretty dang strong. The weight of the panels keep them from moving around on the concrete. I also made a bunch of corner pieces so I could easily change direction of the wall. If you paint make sure to use oil base primer/paint on the first coat to help keep the osb from peeling.

    Creepy, yeah the oil based thing I heard before. The thing is, my stuff should be covered in tin after the season. So I only need my paint to protect for a few months. Maybe 7 months or so, depends on how soon the cold gets here. If it's freezing I'll wait till it warms up... unless of course my boards are bad, then I'll tuff it out in the cold.

    After rereading that I can see where it can get confusion. Here is a drawing of the panel layout and links to the strong ties.

    The BC40 is the one you want which is for a standard 4"x4" post and the easiest to find.

    Anything longer than 6" works fine for the top plate

    What?? You dropped your cell phone in the Haunted house somewhere and wanted to know if I could go get it for you? Sorry, that's against the rules but I will let you go to the front of the line so you can go try to find it yourself. Just give me a moment to let the monsters know you are coming through again...Alone.

    Hey, thanks for the links. No the confusion was on me. I really thought you said to make them 94". lol. I was like.. ehhh what? So I went back and looked. I was wrong.


    The links help a lot. I already got some brackets like you posted, but just a little different I think They're 4" long and not 6", but I'm wanting to use 3 anyways per 90* wall. I don't have many 90* anymore since I cut out 90% of the hallways to make bigger rooms.

    Does anyone know what happened to the OP? Haven't seen him around recently. Things were starting to get entertaining.
