STILLA FLOOR KIT ASSEMBLY VIDEO TRANSCRIPT
In this video we will be assembling the Stilla Timber Floor it.
You will have received it as a carton on its own with all its parts and instructions.
It’s important to read all the instructions and familiarize yourself with the parts before starting assembly. So let’s begin
STEP 1 – FLOOR FRAME LAYOUT
Now it’s important that you assembly your floor on a hard flat surface.
Start by placing the frame parts labeled EP, SJ & DJ as per the diagram in your manual or shown in this video.
Ensure the pre-drilled holes in the parts labeled EP are facing outwards.
Please note that the number of Single Joists ( Labeled SJ) vary depending on the size of the floor you purchased.
STEP 2 – FLOOR FRAME ASSEMBLY
You are going to need to use 2 of the 75N Nails provided per join. Handy tip is to sort your nails out first per join.
Then Nail through Part EP into the a joining DJ and SJ panels,
As you can see here, first join the end panels to provide a structural frame before completing the middle.
Remember to Complete both sides.
And now you should have your frame ready for the floorboards.
STEP 3 – NAILING FIRST FLOORBOARDS
Place 1 x floor board on each end, covering part EP.
Leave a 25mm gap on the outside which is space for rebate. Make sure you measure it out along the whole length
Nail 1 x 50mm Nail labeled 50N into EP at each end.
Complete the same process on the other side.
STEP 4 – SQUARING YOUR FLOOR
Measure diagonals of floor using tape measure and ensure they are equal.
If they are not equal, tap each corner accordingly until equal.
Once the floor is square nail 1 x 50N nail into SJ and DJ on the inside of the floor board (this will hold the floor square).
STEP 5 – COMPLETING YOUR FLOOR
Lay all floor boards in place starting from the outside working in
Depending on the size of the floor you purchased there may be one board that needs to be cut back to fit into its place.
You will need to measure the gap where it needs to go but you need to first ensure the boards are tighly packed and flush, tap them lighting to achieve this. You can then use measuring tape to measure the gap
You will need to measure out the width you need on the remaining board and mark it our. Use a power saw to cut it to the correct size.
Finally you can drop it into the remaining gap. It may need some shuffling to get it to slide in snug.
Once it’s in place and the floor is square you can nail the floor boards starting at EP nailing the end of the boards down.
Finally, to make sure no boards shift you can fix the boards in place along the SJ panels beneath. Use the leftover board as a guide to make sure its straight,
You have now Assembled your Stilla floor kit and are ready to build your shed. Good luck!
