Construction Notes:
  1. Cut joists and end pieces to length and assemble on flat surface. Space joists 14" apart on center.
  2. Screw end pieces to the ends of joists with 3" screws.
  3. Insure module is square and nail on joist hangers.
  4. Bend outside flange of four corner joist hangers flat against end pieces of module.
  5. Screw blocking in place. Blocking maintains 42"-width of module and adds stability to module.
  6. Decking may be attached at this point or after module frame is placed in a ramp. Decking adds significant weight to module. If decking added, you will need to remove decking end pieces when assembling ramp.
  7. Drill a 3/8" hole centered on the end pieces and drill two 3/8" holes 6" from each side. All three holes to be centered vertically on the end piece.
