  1. Day 3 – Build dem Walls!

    July 23, 2011 by Felix

    Frame done, time to put up the walls. Duroc? I actually went with 1/2″ HardieBacker board. Regular coated deck wood screws did great for this.

    My frame wasn’t 100% perfect as far as alignment goes, so I was concerned about the board cracking when screwing certain parts of the board that might have made the board bend too much. Well, I guess I was better than I thought (or maybe it was the Hardie board) because there was no breakage, although there was “bendage.”

    At some huge gaps, I used shims or even some more HardieBoard. I just want to have a nice, straight surface area because at this point, I’m thinking tile will be lining these walls.

    Running total: $270
