Ignore that, old habits, we do lines for the inside of the wall to makes sure houses are straight and square, you will just line up with outside of the floor and nail it down. It's not forty feet long.

But you are not building a shed, consider it a small house. What's a sq.,ft value of a room in a house.

I know, right? I should consider a sink and small ter-lit to go in there and I can rent it out later!

Too bad the plumbing lines are so far from this area of the yard!

The raft had plumbing just outside and it was self levelling.
