It took me three days to put up my storage shed by myself using a hammer. Framing the shed wasn’t too bad but it became quite noisy when applying the sheeting and làm mái tôn. My neighbors did complain about all the noise from my hammering. I could only apologize since I didn’t have access to a nailer in those days. Putting on the roof shingles was the worst and a nailer would have been welcomed at that point. Nailers are a little noisy but not like a hammer and you can do the job a lot faster.

You’ll need safety glasses, ear plugs or ear protection headphones and heavy duty work gloves in order to safely operate the nail gun. When you fire a nail gun, these particular body parts are always in harm’s way after pulling the trigger. Your fingers are subject to accidentally nailing them with the gun, your ears need protection from the noise, and scraps and small pieces of wood might fly out when the nail is fired into the wood.
