I’m preparing for the roof.   

But all the angles are off, and the used corrugated metal roofing needs right angles. I tried to get right angles and parallels from the start, but something has gone askew.

The tarps started blowing off.

The roof blew off the bird house.

Using 100 year old boards from a saw mill we helped tear down last year.

Timogarden lumber yard

It consists mostly of salvaged lumber from the saw mill and a demolished deck, metal roofing and a lot of odds and ends.

Here I can find a bit of just about anything but never quite enough.
