  Got the sheathing finished. Put on 4" white aluminium starter strip and put a 3 ft wide run of eve guard on the lower portion of the roof followed by tar paper on the upper section. I shingled it with IKO Cambridge AR in Green to match the house and garage. Next will be to finish off the soffit, fascia and skirting, apply building paper to the outside and get the windows/doors installed. I may be getting a roll up door after all. I found a local guy who buys up surplus, used and end of run doors and will custom make a roll up door for me for about 1/2 the retail price. Should know in the next day or so if he has anything I can use.

The starter strip took some time to put up but will make it easy to have a nice finished look.

Had to improvise some scaffolding on the back side. No room for staging back there.

All that bending and squatting on the roof was hard on the back!

Looks good, My roll up door dosn't take up much celing space as it rolls into a tube shape rather than pull back over the celing.

Roll up door would be nice and well worth the effort!  I like that you have gone large with the windows...more window area than most garages. 

Excessive bending and squatting is a sure way to wake up dormant muscles.

Looking good.  My back would have gave out days ago!  I also have a roll up door that when up is in a big roll but doesn't take up much ceiling space, but there is a gap between the upper door track and the door trim.  One of these days I will have to fix that.

 Those roll up in a tube doors are compact but this one will be a conventional garage door. I need the insulation that's possible with a panel door. I talked to the guy yesterday and he has a door set ready for me. He made it 5'4" wide which is the rough opening I have to work with. It's made from 2" thick panels and should have a good R value. That's one advantage to a custom built door. The size can be optimized. I'm going to pick it up today. 

  It's raining off and on every day here lately and I can't get much done outside. I notice that with 1 day of sun the shingles on the ridge vent have flattened out nicely. We have been getting some real down pours with thunder showers and it hasn't leaked a drop. No wind storms yet to test it. I'm wanting to get the outside finished up so I can take a break from it and move on to something else. A lot of chores have gone undone here lately!

You are right on the money there Daniel. She has already said that a workbench right in front of those windows would be a great spot for her to make jewellery.

It's just a small thing I noticed but have never seen before--- what a good idea to make a bumper strip to rest the ladder on while shingling! Now why did that not occur to me before? Just watching this makes my fingers itch, I really like building things. You can never have too many sheds IMO.

Been a while since I updated. The weather turned wet and slowed me down for a while. Doing everything yourself when you don't have experience doing things adds to the time required to get stuff done. I've been using the internet to get a lot of info/watch videos on how to do things right, although you see some stuff on there that just isn't right. One guy installing an exterior door with no shims and no flashing/caulking. Anyway, I took a lot of pictures but when I went to download them they were not on the camera. Don't know what happened. Perhaps my wife already downloaded them onto her computer. I took a few more this morning . 

  Got the soffit and fascia done, which was a lot of work using ladders and some scaffolding on the front. got windows and man door installed, siding well under way and most of the skirting done except for the spots where venting will be installed. Got to do the threshold and jam/casing for the roll up door next, then the siding on that end can be finished and the door installed. I want to get the gutters/downspouts on soon. The water splashes off the ground in the back and puts black mud all over the wall. I've got some scraps of OSB there for now to protect it.

Heres the driveway up to the yet to be installed roll up door. I still need to add fill and make a short ramp.

How it sits right now. Got to get that front finished this morning and move on!

Brian the shop fits so well into your house architecture it looks like it was made alone with the house. Nice job!

I love the ship lap siding. As a professional carpenter, I have to say that you do better work than most guys in the business. Looks good.  :thumbs:  :thumbs:
