Build a Gazebo : Installing the Gazebo Firing Strip: Part 2

Hi! Welcome back to Expert Village. My name
is Charlie Folkman and today we are going to continue building our gazebo. So now we
have the marks that we need. So the next step is to screw the furring strip on to the beam.
So I am going to go ahead and hand Richard a couple of screws first. You are going to
want to put a screw about every foot. We will just go ahead and start there at the top.
Now what he is going to do is line it up with his first mark up there, go ahead and put
a screw about an inch from the top and you need to make sure that you are lined up. Now
if you notice we are not using the drill bit first to free drill our holes because this
is really not cosmetic. That was just for that purpose. We are going to go ahead and
just going to put screws in about every foot all the way the entire furring strip. Every
time you move down, make sure you are lined up with your marks. We are going to go ahead and attach these
furring strips to every beam a half inch in and then after we get that done, we will be
able to cut out lattice and install it.
