Strapping (young lads?), and walls

Categories Uncategorized

Cut myself a LOT of the polyester strapping for compressing the walls – I need to do this before bolting the bottom plate down to the slab, because the straps have to go under the plate.

Started rolling the straps up for tidiness and not-tripping-over things, but quickly realised it was going to take a few hours and it was something that could be done at home. Loaded the entire mess into the back of the ute, and spent some time this evening rolling them up – rolled one end much shorter than the other, and left about 600mm between the two rolls, so that I can have a short end on alternating sides of the wall for each strap. This helps avoid getting uneven tension on the wall while compressing and pulling the whole thing over.
