The first step is the preparation of the four pillars, width 8 cm Next, you need edged Board width of 12 inches and suitable for framing racks, long. Alternately boards nailed to the uprights with nails which length should be not less than 10 cm These nails will allow you to securely connect the parts together.

For girders and uasin suitable Board having a thickness of 2.5 cm is all you’ll need six rafters, eight ucoin and three pins.
The upper ends of the rafter pairs are interconnected by pre-cutting them with the angle, and fix with screws. To ensure that the design was more durable, 30 cm below the top mount bolt.

Mount produce screws, four on each Board. To bond the boards stronger and to exclude their movement relative to each other, one block kill diagonally.
The house well is almost ready, it remains to sheathe the Gables, set on the door knob, latch and hung it on loop. In order for the material lasts longer, and the finished design had a nice appearance on the outside it is treated with an antiseptic, cover with waterproof paint and varnish.
