Installment #7 was actually done yesterday . . . I just blogged it tonight.

This is what we did tonight.

It was a little windy and drizzly tonight, however we were determined to get the roof on. I started by attaching two blocks on each side of the roof on the inside. Once the roof is up on the frame these blocks would guide the roof back along the sides. The theory is that it would prevent the roof from sliding off to either side. Theory did actually work in this case.

Various pictures of the roof attached. Take a look at how DW prettied up the ground in front.

having one of those on the projects list- what lumber did you use? did you use any finish on it to protect if from the elements (rain/snow/ice) ?

Pretty impressive. That is, with DW’s work in front, it’s pretty. And, I’m impressed at how quickly this seems to have come together. Well done, sir.

It looks like now all that’s left is the door, & some plants.
