Put a lid on it

My shed has the outline of a roof! I couldn’t have done it without Tim’s help and even then it was a little dicey. The shed was very “fluid”, meaning it shifted 3 inches when I leaned my ladder on it, and he came up with the idea of bracing it. Now it’s solid.

I used crummy brackets for the peak but ended up using the miter saw anyway for “ birds mouth” cuts, which let the angled rafter sit flat on the top board of the wall. In fact I was over zealous and cut a few too many.

I also think I angled the rafter ends the wrong way but I like the look. Next up, frame a window and put up wall siding. Little by little.

Bee update: The new queen is installed and making more bees! Yay!
