Full weekends progress. The trim should cover the mis alignment on the last roof panel. I'll get the other side closer. I will be glad when I can start moving stuff in!

Yep it's getting close.  Are you going to set up your work bench, install installation and run electrical before moving in?

The electrical - insulation - Work bench budget was eaten up with the slab repair. But all that can be done a little at a time over the next couple years. I still need to purchase a good 36" walk in door..... any suggestions? Lowes and Home Depot are the closest stores.

Do you have a reclaimed lumber store near you?  You may also want to check with habitat for humanity and see if they have a store near you.  They have new and used items.

Weather looks good this week, but I only have a couple hours after work to work on this. I need a new battery for my drill as I need 2. One to drill the top ridge pilet hole and the other to sink the fastining screw. Hope next weekend is as good as this. I may even have the doors on.

Larry, if I built anything without making some sort of mistake like tin alignment, I think I'd have a heart attack! Looks great from here.  One question though....with not having overhang at the drip edge, did you put the sealing foam under the roof panels to prevent water from creeping/blowing up onto the wood?

Looking good Larry. I wouldn't be too concerned about that little misalignment.

That's why they make trim.

I always get a chuckle when talking with a builder or framer, and they say that

"so and so" is a good trim carpenter, and talk about him like he's a god.

That's because "so and so" is real good at covering/hiding their mistakes, and

rescuing them.

Yes i used the pre-formed foam under the edges, and plan to fill all the edges (including the ones with foam) with the expanding foam in a can.

Tonight's progress, 4 more roof panels, 3/4 done and "0-Accidents". Man it is starting to get dark early. Thanks for the comments. If wondering I am saving the front wall to last as it will be the most technical with the two doors.

Just use the 'low expansion' foam.  That front wall will be the hardest, but you now have sheet metal experience. You'll do fine!

Side note: Once I am done I'll use "Movie Maker" to do a beginning to end with the best pictures. A little birdi told me Windows XP will become non-supported earily next year so Movie maker will be obsolete.
