I'm thinking that if he's going to make it 6X6, it would probably be just as economical to make it 7'8" by 7'8" to take advantage of the fact that plywood sheets come in 4X8 foot sizes and 2X4's are available in 8 foot lengths. Making it 6 X 6 is gonna result in more waste material.

Besides, if he makes it larger, he might have room to put a slot machine in there, too.

Nestor, you're right 2x"s come in 8' setions, they also come in 12' peices. Cut 1 in half and you have a 6'. Rip a sheet of ply 2' to fill in the partial piece and you really have little waste.

Now insted of a slot machine I'm thinking hot tub, but thats just me....

Me thinks 6x6 would be better. Heated toilet seat? A/C in the back wall? Sound system?

If you made it 8X8, you'd have room for a bar and a small dance floor.

People would come in to use the toilet and stay till closing at 2:00 AM.

I guess a bowling alley would be out of the question.

Huh?
