Question

wood framing end wall on a steel building


I have a metal building that I need to wood frame in an end wall with a garage door. This is the first time I have worked with a wood to metal type of construction. Do I just use sheet metal screws to attach the wood to the metal shell? Would it be easier to build the wall on the ground and stand it in place?

Can you post a picture standing in front of it so we can see what shape it is?
I would try and set the wall just inside of the of the roof so there's an overhang so water will not run down that wall.
It would be idea if you could get another set of bows so the wall could be directly attached to that thicker metal.

Like a Quonset hut?

I'm gonna say no. You'll something far more substantial to attach to the steel framing (think welders) which in turn can have wood nailers attached to.

Usually so... but before you do that make sure you have something to nail that wall to.

Its like a quonset but with straight walls and rounded edges of a gable roof. It is a US Buildings garage made of galvaluminum.
