I like using double joining methods whereever possible.

For example glue and screws

welding and bolts

I total agree with Mike. I used Gorilla glue at all the major structure joints and then screwed them together.

I use heavy duty construction adhesive and the longest presunk deck screws that will fit. And having just replaced the roof on tear 2 it is REALLY on there.
