You have wanted a storage building somewhere out in back of the house for years.
A seasonal home for the mower, the wheelbarrow, the garden tools, the bicycles, the skies, the skates, the hockey sticks, and the goal with its Swiss cheese looking net.
A place to put all the conglomerated necessities of family life so there will be room for your wife’s car.
Get yourself a plan
Any supply center of lumber and related building materials will most always have a selection of “Do it yourself” brochures. You can find a storage building design fitting your needs with the step by step directions, measurements, and a list of all the materials needed to get the job completed.
But you don’t want to swing a hammer
Usually the directions include the approximate number fuel cell air compressor of nails for each part of the building. There could be three or four different lengths and shanks dimensions.
For some of us the art of hitting a nail on the head with a hammer is a mystery. The head is nicked to the point of being jagged instead of round, or it has been bent so many times it has to be pulled out and start over with a new one.
Many of these same supply houses or certainly contractor rental stores have automatic nailing tools to end your hammering nightmares. You have the option of air operated (pneumatic), but that means having an air compressor, a pneumatic nailer with at least one length of hose, and access to electrical power supply within a reasonable distance.
The ultimate solution is to use the cordless tools. Powered by a battery and a “Go Green” fuel cell, you can clip these tools to your belt and have the freedom and mobility (and no compressor noise) not possible from the pneumatic system.
Go Green fuel cell
I am using this term as it has become the mantra of the present time. I am very familiar with the Paslode Impulse© cordless tools that use a battery and a fuel cell as the power supply. The fuel is pressurized by a chemical sealed inside a special bag.
Every time the tool fires the chemical in this little bag expands to keep the fuel pressurized. Nothing escapes into the atmosphere.
When the fuel is completely exhausted you can shake the spent cell and it sounds as if there is still fuel in it. The sound is the pressuring chemical sloshing around as it has been fully expanded. Hence, I call it a “Go Green” fuel cell.
Pop not bang
These tools are referred to as guns, but they are surprisingly quiet when you consider what just happened when you pulled that trigger. A measured amount of fuel was ignited by a spark created by the battery, and “Bang”.
