Instructions
1a – Use the furring strips to build a support for the corrugated metal sheets. Set the first/bottom strip 2 feet from the floor and, using 2-inch concrete screws (for wood walls, use 2-inch wood screws), screw in every 8 inches. Repeat for 18 feet as to give support to all the metal sheets

1b – Set the second/top strip 4 feet from the first strip and, using 2-inch concrete screws (for wood walls, use 2-inch wood screws), screw in every 8 inches. Repeat for 18 feet as to give support to all the metal sheets

Make sure to use a level throughout the process to avoid a crooked line.

2. Using gloves, a level and an extra pair of hands, grab the first metal sheet and set it on the left side of the furring strips. Align the metal sheet to the level and screw it into the strip using 1/2-inch self-tapping sheet metal screws. Use 2 screws on the top strip and 2 screws on the bottom strip. Repeat every 10 feet to avoid the screws in the furring strips

3. Grab another corrugated metal sheet and overlay it on the first one. You only need to overlay the farthest indents. Once leveled, screw it into the strip using 1/2-inch self-tapping sheet metal screws. Use 2 screws on the top strip and 2 screws on the bottom strip. Repeat every 10 inches to avoid the screws in the furring strips. Repeat steps for all remaining metal sheets
