I couldn't head off to site immediately.
First I needed to create two more short studs for blocking.
I am flying blind on these as I don't want to take the band saw or drop saw with me - so having a guess as to dimensions.
This then gave me 6 short studs that I needed to rebate to allow for the diagonal knee bracing.
At home, the band saw did most of the work with just an additional saw cut and a few blows with a chisel.
Once out on site, the first four studs fitted easily and the two "flying blind" studs needed a few 20 minute adjustments.
Once all the studs were in I added the little extensions to all the studs that did not quite reach down to the very bottom of the header beams.
Now I am all set up for attaching the gyprock from the inside (though that is probably some time off).
Finally I ran around with some cold galvanising to protect where I had drilled in to the diagonal braces to screw in to the studs.
By now it was getting late so I packed away all the tools I no longer needed and started to consider the flashing.
I played around with a few pieces - I have been concerned that I might need to cut 20 mm off all the veranda joists in order to insert the flashing but so far it looks like this will not be necessary.
I stayed on site overnight - in the evening I had the chance to stack some more of the Marri floor boards and to clean up inside.
