    Subfloor Question

    Maybe I shouldn't have chosen the word sub-floor. No support needed, just protection and possibly help leveling minor bumps of the packed dirt if it's not superbly leveled. Thanks!

    Yes, the sub-floor is going directly on the dirt, no framing required. I am currently looking at 7/16" OSB, but it's still way too expensive. What is the poly that you are suggesting?

    8' High 4' by 16' platform

    Hello! I found a similar thread, and am looking for some more information. I need to build an 8' high platform that runs 4' by 16' using 2 stock 4' by 8' platforms. There are other platforms for the show, heights of 2', 4' and 5'. I have already built this, using 4x4s as legs, and 1x4s as cross...
