The front wall of 2x4's goes up around the door opening (at left), which is cross braced with boards.
The house stands on three stub walls built from pressure-treated lumber.
The ridge beam was raised one step at a time, between two tracks of vertical 2x4's, while the gable on the nearest end was constructed beneath.
