This is the eighth of 15 videos. In this video we will be installing the LP Smart Side Panels on the front and back of the shed.
It may seem odd to install the LP Smart Side Panels on just the front and back walls but it is an important step and doing things in this order will make things easier as you continue. Henry explains why in this video. LP Smart Side Panels are not hard to install but there are some things you should know and they are covered in this video.
IMPORTANT: Much of the strength and stability of the shed comes through the LP Smart Side Panels. However they are OSB and only 3/8″ thick so it is important to use a good glue like PL Premium as noted in the videos (LP Smart Side Panels are also available in 5/8″ via special order). In addition, if you plan to use the drip cap base, I recommend watching all the shed videos before installing the LP Smart Side Panels.
In some areas, panels similar in appearance to these may be called Ranch Wall, which is a little different and may or may not have a lap joint. Check this before proceeding and make sure you pay attention to the differences you see in the video versus the type of panels you use (if you are not using the 3/8″ LP Smart Side Panels).
