Re: Single-wall house

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
While I was living on the island of Hawaii in the early 70's, I was able to 
witness a few of the single wall residences being constructed. The procedure 
was to build the floor platform first (pier and pad foundation), construct 
temporary supports and build the roof next, then the wall boards would be 
nailed to the floor and roof and the temporary supports removed. A 2x girt 
board would be added to the wall exterior at mid-height.
