  1. Thank you, these are great plans

  2. DO NOT USE THESE PLANS.

    Something is very wrong with this plan. You can’t drill through 4 inches with screws that are 2 1/2″ long if you lay the wood as the diagrams suggest, but if you turn the 2×4’s the way you would frame a wall all the measurements are off. Also you can never build a structure 5 feet 7 inches tall with the cuts that are suggested. This plan should be taken down or corrected. I just spent $350 on supplies, hopefully I can salvage a run by going freehand.
