In framing the roof I have used 2×6 boards as the rafters and 2x8s that run the perimeter of the roof framing. The rafters have been notched out to rest on the wall framing appropriately. I am yet to add the hurricane-ties and perimeter of the framing, but I thought I should share what progress has been made and will update later.

During this process I also began wall sheathing as to add a bit more stability and “reality” to see how square things are at the moment. In doing so there hasn’t been anything too alarming that has caused me to cry, but instead there have been a few chuckles of imperfection. That’s the joy of a DIY project like this! All the more character, right?
