Exceptionally well made and up to your usual standard.

(that being completely “Over the Top”) tee hee

Now a couple of things though,
1. What happened to swirts suggestion? or have you covered it with the second roof?

2. For those of us that dont “do” facebook or instagram some construction details showing a materials and tool list would be nice?

Thanks!

1. swirts made a good point and I’m going to look at the facia coverage of the rafter tails on both the woodshed and pavilion projects.

2. Very basic tools for this project: circular saw, hand saw, chisels, wooden mallet, speed square, power plane, angle grinder with sanding disc, level, bar clamps, cordless drill and impact driver and a few other small things.

Materials are mainly 6×6 cedar for posts and upper beams, 2×8 for the girts, rafters, and front roof beams. And I think the braces are from 2×8 stock too. Strapping for the roofs was 1×8’s and 1×6’s.
