The Main support is up.  It is important that the  main post are Square.

How-To-Square-A-Foundation-7 This is a illustration of how to square the poles. I painted the lines of the wall on the ground to make it easier to find where to dig the holes.

The roof panels are done.  Note the spaces left open, they are for the the different angles of the walls connecting to the roof.  All the holes for the holds are drilled before installing the panels.

100_3503 A different view of the roof panels going up

100_3508The 2×4’s are up for the walls.

100_3510A look at the steeper side.

100_3513   All but one of the panels are up on the vertical wall. we used 2” wood screws to fasten the plywood to the 2×4’s.

100_3516 The first 2 panels on the steep wall.  We decided to drill the holes in an 8” on center pattern.

100_3517 A look between the different angled walls to the roof. Joist Hangers are used to connect the 2×4’s on the roof.

100_3519 The top side of the roof.  By the way, there are the 3” screws I was looking for.

100_3520The filler panel is cut and installed.

Another view of the wall panels (little blurry).  I will continue with the pics as soon as we get some holds.

    Dude, I loved the pics and drawing you made available for download! Not to advertise, but I have a 6×5 wall (literally, just a wall) section on my apt and I got holds from this guy right here: http://rockymountainclimbinggear.com/id71.html

    They feel real nice and I don’t even chalk up (which makes a mess in an apt). A lil hint: from the looks, when I got the holds they were all dusty (which makes obvious he drills the holes after the holds are dried/cured). I put them inside the dishwasher and that did the trick to clean them up real nice. Even the resign felt like it made the holds to get stickier.
