I am new here so i apologies if this question is in the wrong forum. I have a 9'x11' space at the back of my garage and i am hoping to put a lean-to there, this might get converted to a shed at some point also.
My first question is regarding the wall plate. I will be using a 4'x2' and it will be bolted to the side of the house. This will be @ 11' long. How many fixings should this have in it and at what intervals?
Thanks in advance......lots more questions to come :)
Hi hagus72 A lot will depend on the roof covering you are going to use, tiles are much heavier than plastic sheets. Suggest you start with 5 fixings equally spaced but into bricks not joints. You’ll soon discover which give a sound fixing, if it’s bad move to an adjacent brick. Regards S
