That is beautiful! 

 

Having your own saw mill would be a lot of work, but having that and timber ready to cut that would be awesome and cheap.

Nice Will, nice.
So, this is the ELF wing?

 

I'm kickin around the idea, of making it the Elf/Executive stable. Putting a wiped

yellow stain on the hemlock flooring, would look good, and brighten it up in there

a bit.

 

 

Got the rafters up, and a start on the purlins, after work the past few evenings.

I should be ready for the steel roofing, which is scheduled to show up Thurs.

The long range forecast, has those fluffy white things in it for next week. Eeeeeeek..

I'd sure like to get the roof done before that stuff.

I would think it fitting to be the "Elf/Executive Suite".  Plus they would be the easiest to fit in there with plenty of elbow room.   :thumbs:

Tonight I got the purlins done. I'm ready for the steel roofing.

I'm thinking about putting in a couple of those translucent skylights,

but am a bit skeptical about their leaking history.

I am skeptical about those when there is a tree branch within 50', also.

Skylights are nice if they don't leak, maybe run a couple sections top to bottom in the roof panels.

Will, if you want to be sure of no leaks with the skylights, just put some good quality caulk/sealant where the ribs overlap on each side.  You also want to overlap the steel on the upper end at least 8" or use sealant there also.  I've never had issues with leakage with the screws.  I did have a leak where I didn't have enough overlap on top with the  steel roofing, so sealant stopped that.

I'm probably better off to put my efforts and $ into a better solar system, and

some T8 fluorescents.

 

Considering I spend more time there in the fall and winter, when there is either

snow on the roof, and/or short days

Will, We used those panels in the side walls at the top of the walls and it lets a lot of light during the day with no leaks at all!!

I called my buddy tonight, after posting here. Daylight problem solved.

I have the 2 existing windows (moving into new wall), and I scored  5 more off my buddy tonight.

That should give me plenty of daylight in there.

I got the roof tin on this morning, and then framed in the front wall for the ramp door.

No pic of the ramp door...

Then the rain got the better of me, so I quit.

Thought I'd share this with you too.

 

 

The little outlook roof, that has been removed,

 

P9250265.JPG

 

was built using this connection.

 

PA190334.JPG

 

On the backside of the post a counter bore, and through hole was drilled.

 

PA190332.JPG PA190333.JPG

 

The end of the beam was drilled, and cross drilled.

 

PA190334.JPG

 

The threaded rod with flat bar(with a hole in it) then gets slid

through the post, and a pin slipped in the hole and through

the flat bar. Then tightened up. It's a very strong connection.

This is not my idea. I stole it. There's a company out there

that markets something like this. I think they're called Lynx??

I tried working on our patio today too, but like you, the rain got the best of me & I came inside.  Looking great Will!
