Work space with a set of studs and the headers and footers

From these parts to a studded wall frame by the process below

With squares and spacers the studded wall were built

Here are 3 of the 4 studded wall frames ready for the spaced walls

Each of the 2 cribs required 2 side walls and 2 end walls. The 2X6 boards were spaced to provide air flow to the corn stored in each crib.

Each crib had a floor raised up from the ground.

The cribs were painted before assembley Rail Brown on the inside and roof Brown on the outside. This was done with an air brush. The paint was selected mixed and thined 3 parts paint 1 part thinner for use in the air brush.
