Good guess....but no!
Stay tuned.
photo from today.
All lath screws pre-drilled. Self piercing and self drilling pushes the studs around.

The outdoor BBQ idea is still haunting me but alas I must press on.
photo 1: The long sides were assembled on (4) Keter work tables. I love them.
There are (4) framing squares and (20) or so quick clamps.
photo 2: The basic shape appears. That entire assy only weighs a few lbs. Metal studs are surprisingly light.

Wood Siding - Painting
These are outdoor rated. - 8" on center.
These panels have been dry for a month.
Note the saw horses. It's my temporary paint station.
I moved them around with a tractor.
Many layers of primer and top coat.
I give the customer value. Don't want my phone ringing a year later.

137" x 35" x 45" tall. Bolt-on parts will add to that.
