Introduction

Note that the parts list is for all four floor modules.

  1. Gather your parts and tools, as listed above.
    • Gather your parts and tools, as listed above.

    • Review the image at left to understand what you are building.

    • Cut 2 of your 6' long 2X6s to 5' - 11 1/4". These make up the two long sides of your frame.

    • Cut the other 6 of your 6' long 2X6s to 5' - 8 1/4". These make up the floor joists of the frame.

    • Since you are building a total of 4 of these modules, you will need to create 4 sets of the pieces listed above.

  2. Create layout marks as shown in the image on your two longer 2X6s.
    • Create layout marks as shown in the image on your two longer 2X6s.

    • You only need to measure and mark one of your long 2X6s. You can then use this one as a template to mark your others.

    • Since you will need to build 4 of these modules, you need to mark a total of 8 2X6s as shown in the image on the left.

  3. Layout your pieces on a flat surface like a concrete slab or wooden floor deck. It helps a lot if this surface is completely level. Lay your two longer pieces with the layout marks on them facing each other and lay your 6 shorter pieces in between, roughly in the position of the marks.

    • Pre-drill two holes from the outside at the ends of the board to avoid splitting as shown on the second photo of this step. (The pre-drilling is only necessary at the ends of the board, not in the middle.) Screw (or nail, if you choose) the pieces into position.

  4. You have now completed four frames!
