« Part 5: What are those??? Walls??? Part 6 of The Saw Horse Workshop - A New Begining series Part 7: Inside insulated - Outside Siding Going On »

Here are a couple of pics from yesterday morning (Thursday May 31) and this morning (Friday, June 1, 2007)...we lost almost all of Wednesday due to rain, but the framer made up for it on Thursday and Friday. The roofer is supposed to start Saturday, should have the shingles done in a day.

Thursday morning and the rafters are already half done.

Friday morning and the guys are putting the tar paper on the roof, and the other framer is putting in the bird blocks and slats hanging at the bottom for me to nail the siding to next week. I'm on vacation next week and will working on finishing up the outside siding, insulating the inside and finishing out the inside as well, getting ready for the electrician and hanging the sliding door.

Coming along great, did they use roof trusses or custom framing? Will you be using the attic space for any storage after moving in?

Thanks Wayne and Rick,

Custom framing, these guys are “Old School”, haven’t decided on the attic thing yet, still trying to figure out where to put what…lol

Nothing like walls and a roof to make it feel more like a shop. How much electrical service are you planning?

I am excited to see the “birth” of your shop. I know how it feels.
