Thanks Dan!!!

Done with the board on the roof!!Amen!! Dormers and windows on the gable walls will be cut next spring only.

The next step is to install a vapor barrier on the boards + insulation (Rigid urethane panels recovered from doors and windows plant)

I leave you with a photo of the magnificent structure inside view

Thank you Allen!

thank you!

Thanks Bill!
