Despite the fact we have not posted about the shed in awhile we have been working on it, along with our regular design work. Last week we managed to get the facias, perlins, roof and siding on. So that the post won't be too long, I am focusing this post on the roof. It's really shaping up to be a cute shed and the fact that it is 95% recycled is still a miracle to us.
|John attaching the opposite end of the side facia to the back facia.|
|Facia's in place, we are now ready to attach the perlins that will sit on top of the joists.|
|2x4 perlins run along the top of the joists in the opposite direction. The roof will get nailed to these perlins which also create more stability to the structure.|
|Here I am attaching the perlins to the outer edge of the back facia.|
|Here I am installing small 2x4 blocks between the perlins, otherwise there would be a 1-1/2" space between the roof and the joists. The 2x4 blocking will hopefully keep out unwanted wasps, and other critters.|
|All perlins in place and ready for the metal roofing.|
|Here you see where the galvanized will overlap the aluminum. So what we did was adhere a sticky-backed tar roofing material where they would touch. Hopefully this will prevent accelerated rusting... if any.|
|Roof is on and ready for siding.|
|How cute is this garden shed under the swaying palms?|
|Here is a shot looking from the office out t the shed.|
