Well, It has rained (rather hard at times) and is supposed to continue through tomorrow, so the construction has come to a screaching halt. Probally a good thing. Good news, only leaks I have noticed is around the bottom of the windows, calk should take care of that. Bad news, I have to drop the header over the roll up door 4". I don't know how I got at 7' 4" but after looking at the door rails, it needs to be at 7' even. I have enough tin left over that I can cut 2 new pieces 4" longer over the header. At least I don't need to take all the tin off again.

Rain let up a while. I got the header droped to 7' and the trim installed. I set the rails to get a measurement and check the headroom.
Measured 7.5" from axle to door, and I have 11.5 for the left headroom.
I'll also need to add a couple more 2X4's so to bolt the upper door brackets to.
Getting there.

Weekend progress. Both doors work fine! a little fine tuning and done. All that is left is the trim. I should be able to finish that this week. Then clean-up, Stack the salavaglable wood, and not sure what to do with the tin. I have one good 8' and a bunch of cut scrap.

Hang that good piece of tin up high on one of your end walls.  Place the red in, so that it will blend better.  Put a couple screws in the grooves to hang it.  Ya never know when a spot could get damaged outside.  All looks great!

Congratulations! I have been working on my carport enclosing it so I can have winter work space. I know how it feels when you are close to the end.....something about knowing that the project is almost completed and the time to enjoy it is a at hand.  You have a really nice set up there!

Looks like the shop came out just fine, even with a few little issues.  You will really enjoy making the shop your own.

Great job Larry. Looks good.

As Daniel said, save that extra piece of tin. You're going to need

it for the addition.

Had one of those eye exams this morning where they dialiate the eyes. Finally around 2:00 it became some what overcast and didn't look like we had a super nova for a Sun, so I was able to complete the trim. Now for the cleanup. This shop looks a lot better than mt first, but I can't complain after 6 years, and I am still in here.

 

Thanks for all the comments and following. Phase 2 and 3 (Electrical and insulation) will be a little at a time.

I still have to install the ridge screws on the side wall R-panel, and use the "Great Stuff" foam to seal the bottom openings. But the Wife needs me to work on her project (a 5' X 2' X 4') bird cage. I decided that I neglected the yard enough, and rain is predected again this weekend..... So I called in sick. It was a very nice day today at 72 degrees. Great seat time! Started weed-eating at 9:00 am, moved to the push mower at 11:30, and finally got RED going at 1:30. Finished at 4:30, and gave RED a much needed bath. Sitting on the hill to allow water to drain through the holes in the deck. Plan on using BMP to tow the trailer tomorrow and trim some of the bushes and trees, (had an issue with low branches) and give him a bath. I really feel good when the yard looks like this.
