« Part 1: Week 1 Part 2 of Adding on to the shop series no next part

My helpers and I got lots done this week on the addition.We put down the T&G flooring and set the 6” x 6” posts.

Got the rest of the beams installed and closed- in the side wall, end wall and installed the rafters.

I got the Onduro roofing installed on Thursday and we finished up the board and batten on Friday.

It was nice to have help toting, fetching and nailing but all these things ended when my helpers began their own adventure with a trip to China.. I still have to build a door, steps and start work on the heating system.
Winter is just around the corner

Great looking construction. Some of the “New framers” wouldn’t understand it. HEAVY duty, notched, take the time and do it RIGHT> NICE WORK. I appreciate people that can do this.
