A homeowner took a friend of mine aside, " I don't know if the new guy is going to work out, I don't think he can read a tape  :o"  "Why?" he asks. "They were fitting a piece of casing and he asked for 36 and three quarts less a blond short to short" 

My friend allowed that he thought the new guy might catch on fast and work out just fine  :).

Its looking good guys. Time to put a lid on that box  ;D.

Well, this is the way I did it, and its solid. I'll put it up against 6 foot of snow. I still have some framingto do for the back gable window, but almost ready to finish sheeting.  The center beam runs out the front and supports the canteleverd roof and loft.

Here are the kids sheeting.

Well, I appreciatte all the cyphering, but honestly, I just did it my way. I put to braces up to hold the ridge board, held up two rafters and marked them, then used them for patterns for each side.

If tin were cheaper then shingles, I would consider it.  I guess I'll have to hire it shingled. I aint able to do that. Furby, ya need a job?
