KC,

Looking good!!!! I am just a bit ahead of you, but are structures look almost identical. My scratch coat is done and I just finished the roof, except the tiles (still waiting for Jim and the supplier). The only thing I did different is I used plywood for my roof instead of hardibacker. I debated back in forth but ultimately went with the plywood with the foil lining on one side. Why did you settle with the hardibacker? I sure hope I will be okay with the plywood. There really is no heat escaping so I should be fine.

Hi KC,
is there a specific name for those studs you are using for framing? thanks Carlo

I used the Haribacker for the roof for the "just in case" factor. Not much difference in price, so I figured, why not. I'm going to a tile "boneyard" today and looking at some tiles. We'll see what happens.

I don't know what the name of the metal studs are, but I got them @ Lowe's. I know some HD's also carry them. There are a couple of different sizes. I used the 25 gauge. Easy to cut with snips or a grinder. Use "track" for the plates and stud every where else. The studs will have holes cut in them already for wiring.

Wish I had thought about the wiring before I poured concrete. It actually never occured to me to put any lighting on the structure until I saw some finished pictures. Now just one more thing to figure out. I will most likely use low voltage lights like the rest of the deck.

The structure looks great by the way. Pretty much exactly what I want to do. I am planning on brick for the lower section and stucco for the house with a terracota roof.

I found some roof tiles yesterday at a roofing "boneyard". The tiles were salvaged from The Broadmoor, a local historic grand hotel. The tiles are ~ 75 years old and have weathered beautifully. They even have some lichen on some of the tiles. I was able to get the tiles, bird stop, ridge and rack tiles. They were a little pricy, but I think they will work nicely.

Carlo,

No specific name....just metal studs. The ones you find at retail centers are usually 25 gauge, but I would recommend at least 20 gauge which will provide better strength, especially when it comes to roof support. You will need to go to a wholesaler of drywall supplies or there is a company here locally (Scafco) who sells nothing but metal studs.
