Mmmmmmm... plastic. Soon the mower will be INSIDE the shed.

Well, it seemed like overkill, but everything I read said that vinyl siding does not stop water, so I added some housewrap to the list.

Still not done, but I keep getting closer ... I was able to finish the ladders for the overhangs, and the gable framing(not shown) in no time, with the new nailer. The soffit finish work is done as well, but it was too dark to take pictures.
My elbow finally gave out...
Butane operated framing nailer: Ironically I need a "cordless" nailer because I need to finish the this shed to make room for the compressor in the garage :-O

Well, between rain, snow, and my mistakes, I actually didn't get much done this week, but I should get more done this weekend. Oh... and I didn't beat the snow.

The most time consuming mistake that I made was trying to save on plywood by lowering it an inch and a half. This way I had exactly 2' and could use the other half on the other wall. The problem is that I had already cut the rafters to fit the 2x4 walls (without sheathing). So I had to cut small pockets in the sheathing for each rafter. DOH!!
Mistake number 1: Once I setup ridge beam support, originally set for an 8:12 pitch roof, I realized that made it way to big. So I had to cut them down for a 6:12 pitch roof.
