i carved this sword
i was wondering something, if i was to locate SAFE (looking at codes and such to avoid bad chemicals) recycled materials to build dog houses to sell, assuming*laughs because its not likely* anyone would buy them, i was wondering, can studs for a dog house safely be 1x3's or would i have to go with 2x's? if i can go with 1x's, would i have to go with 3.5 inch wide and shorten the spacing to 8 o.c. or is 2.5 wide and 16 o.c. fine? for the roofing (and siding) i was thinking of shiplapping or cheap shingles, dont want to put too much money in it(the recycled material is free), would a 16ga nailer be ok to do the framing or would i need something more like deck screws?
