What tools do you use to cut windows and doors in the U Panel?

It looks like you framed it out of 1" tubing and lined the interior with plywood. Filled the wall space with rigid insulation and sheeted the outside with r panel. Is this correct?

I bet it would be really light weight if not for the plywood interior.

You are correct. And yes the plywood does make it heavier.

Can you post a picture of how you did your stairs. What material did you use for them?

Would that be a table saw or hand held? All I have is a hand held.

Hand held circular saw with metal cutting blade. Or you can turn a fine cut wood blade backwards.
