Where did you get the Studs at? What gauge are they? I found that the big M store has them and you can order pretty much any size and gauge. They definitly are much more money though.

Studs came from midwest iron in mankato. Not sure what guage but they will never bend crack or rot.

Did you weld or bolt the studs to the trailer? I am thinking of using metal studs when I do mine.

Ordered some hole covers and lites from fish house supply and had them on my door step in 2 days. Great service. Been waiting on some siding from a different company for over a month now. May just have to get some from fish house supply as I am growing very impatient

I'm thinking about building one from the frame up. What did you use for material for the frame? I was thinking 2X3 but not sure what gage.

Looks good! Definetely Tyvek it and don't go with anything other than Tyvek or one that looks like it (webbed fibers). I was wondering where you ordered the sising from and if you every got it?

The inside looks beautiful. Knotted pine strips? Nicely done. Keep us posted as progress continues.

There's a place not too far from you in annandale that sells siding and roofing. google "prject fish house". I don't know if they have the exact same siding that was used in this project though...
