My garage is right on the property line, and my so is my neighbors. Its not a shared wall, but the two are about a 1 foot (maybe 1.5 feet) apart. Its not enough room for me to squeeze back there. The siding is pretty rotted through, and the previous owner of my garage used some MDF type particle board as the sheathing which is disintegrating. A lot of the studs need some replacing as well, along with the sill plate on the foundation. Its a pretty flat roof garage, so the wall I'm replacing is just a plain 10'x20' regularly studded wall. There are no tricky angles or anything on the wall, its square.
Any ideas on how to replace the wall and siding? Are there any siding systems that I could assemble on the roof and flip up and lower into the gap? Sliding a new wall in from the side might be possible but it seems really heav and unmanageable. Just like lowering a new wall down from above, how do I secure it inside? Would I have to assemble the wall studs and all before I do this? Or can I pre-assemble the sheathing-wrap-siding panels and fasten them from the inside with some clever fasteners.
Thanks, any ideas or help would be appreciated.
