I have built several structures with B&B and like the looks, speed of construction, and durability (get foundation high enough so bottom of boards don't get wet). I get boards (1x8 and 1x10) planed one side (install rough side out) and battens approximately 1 1/2" by 1/2'.
I am starting to build in Nicaragua and looking at different techniques. One thing that I am trying to get is dog toothed timber washers. They are code approved in the UK, but no supplier will sell and send them to me in Nicaragua. Are they available in Ontario?
