No I'm not putting ply down yet. I know I should but I have already spent more then I planned for just this part. 100$ so far. Will that hold for now? I'm gonna add bracing in the top frame as well

Oh man! What happened to $30?!? You counting the drill I hope, yes the X in top rectangle will replace ply just fine.

Dude it went fast. X14 2x4s x2 boxes of nails x37 cuts (8.00) and a drill

Here is where I'm at. Now I need more screws because my wife's baby shower is today so I'll be home alone to finish
