There's always one tractor that's got to leak all of it's vitals over everything in it's path. Are you going to add bracing and sides to that shelter?

know i'm a new guy, really not trying to rain on anyone's parade, but i did notice:
pic 1. 2x4's laid wrong way - no strength, 
pic 2. roof-line looks "bowed" already with just supporting the weight of the roofing 
 - and in Indiana, if up next to where the 'lake-effect' is - (think "wet snow") - do you know what your snow-load pounds per square foot is going to be?

might could save what you already have by adding two more posts in the middle and a support beam across, would save coming out to find the tractors "buried" in the stuff you were trying to keep them "out" of...

Glad you don't get the heavy snow loads. They may be picturesque, but snow load and shoveling sucks.
One easy way to stiffen those boards would be to laminate another 2x4 (or even a 2x3) on the bottom of the boards you have
Gorilla glue and a few screws the right length would really stiffen them up if you felt the need

I'm sure they feel much better under roof. Glad the project is going well.
