« Part 2: Roof Framing Part 3 of Shop Remodel Project series no next part

I got the slats for the roof up and the metal for the roof is in. Just installed the metal roof all by myself in one day ( that was a job )! Wind was a factor I would lean the sheets up and the wind would blow them down. Still have to put up trim work and more bracing for the roof. Don’t know what kind of wood I’m putting up on the gable ends yet. As for the windows and the doors I still working on that too. I think it could use some paint soon. It’s still an ugly ducklin but it’s coming together. Can’t wait to get my tools in there and start working!

There is also a picture of my homemade scaffold that I made. It’s not the best looking thing but it gets the job done.

That’s very exciting. One step at a time.

Coming along nicely!
You’ll have a ball in your new shop that you fixed up your self.
I built one about the same size many years ago and built many a cabinet for Applebees in it.
Had a wood burning wonder heater to heat and burn up the scrapes, good times.

O! and I like the wheels on the end of your scaffolding get on that end and you can pull yourself around but can only go in one direction so shouldn’t flip out from under you great work.
