Not sure how much more I'll get done today. Started doing the rafters individually till everything lined up at 141-1/8 inches. After I got half way, I started installing the remaining metal hangers and marked the remaining rafters for cutting. I am straping (hurricane ties) and double cross 3" screws on everything at the top. My knees ache, I have 3 lares of sun block on but still feel burnt, and I have several splinters to dig out. Not bad for a weekend. :wave:

Looking good!

I had to wear a hoodie outside and have a small fire in the wood burner.

I'll pay for this tomorrow, but I worked on this till I ran out of day light. Only the end rafters remain.

Looks good.  Must be nice to be able to build

without having to take snowload into account.

I've lived here for almost 18 years and can only remember a hand full of signifiant (1" - 2") snows, and a couple ice storms. All were melted off by noon or worst case in a couple days.

Building code up here calls for 50 pounds/sq ft snow load.

Good thing we've got lots of trees to turn into sticks.

If I built a roof to those codes, I would add a second story room. :rolling:

That's looking real good, Larry! Might want some insulation between the rafters to keep the heat down. That tin will get mighty hot down there!

My friend I hate to keep mentioning things but what is the reason you set your rafters in brackets instead of on top of the wall? This would transfer your roof weight on your wall & not on a bracket. Rafters are suppose to sit on the wall passing over the wall creating a rafter tail. Just curious  :D

I saw that too, on the tails. Was wondering what was the deal there!

The tin was ordered exactly 12' for the roof panels and 8' for the walls. I looked at how other rafters were done and figuered my way would be stronger than theirs.

I can always add additional braces / tiedowns. Anyhow today's progess, Tin had arrived and first thing I did was grab a sheet and test fit it. I comfirned that I can't add perlings on top of the rafters, so I will be going inbetween like the current shop, but instead of 4' centers I'll be doing 2' 6" centers. The walls will have 30" perlings flush with the wall studs, current shop only was screwed into the wall studs. Doing my best Guys, and thanks for the comments. It helps.
