« Part 1: The start Part 2 of SHOP 2016 series Part 3: Part 3 »

Was hoping to have all the tin on and the purlins on roof.
DID NOT Happen !
Rained all day yesterday. Tried 5 different times and got soaked each time !
250lbs of OLD MAN soaking wet is NOT a pretty site!
Today was sunny.
WINDY as ever…....of course.
Managed some small sheets of tin.
Finished rafters…....almost ! 1 2×6x9’ SHORT.
During the wind this morning I was bracing a little more than planned. Guess I used one 2×6 for that !
Hopefully tomorrow is nice….....AND I NEED help. 32ft sheets are awkward alone !

Today was good day. Finished all the purlins.
Ready for tin now.
Lots of climbing, finally went and borrowed scaffolds. They helped a lot. Still lots of climbing !
The “Old guy” is a little tired tonight.
