We are just disagreeing (Which is kind of fun).
i don't think i'd be working off of any scaffolding built by someone that needs advice on standing a wall.

jhaslip is right. i encourage DIY-ers, but there are some things that should not be attempted on your own... at least do it with an experienced 'contractor' buddy or some experienced knowledgeable help, hired for certain stages. good way to get hurt, hurt someone, or end up with an abortion of a house.

If you are not scared off, are you raising this with man-power? I raised a 30' x 18' high, sheathed wall by myself and my eldest son and 4 wall jacks. I could list the details, not if it's on empty ears......

Be safe, Gary

That is impressive. Did you have any pucker moments. When you get close to getting it up ( am I allowed to say that) can be Hairy.

16 X 8.5 IS manageable... length is almost irrelevant as it just becomes repetitious jack/brace, etc.... it's the height that KILLS ya! 20' tall wall X 19' can be problematic (and i say that as an experienced DIY/contractor/homebuilder)... IMHO, not something one with NO experience should take on without knowledgeable help close at hand! Just prescribing caution... DIY is great and i encourage it, but there are reasons why there are 'professionals' in all professions.... if it was all an easy, safe, 'no-brainer', there would be NO MONEY to be made at it as ANYONE could do it!

no offense intended; just my dos centavos!
