    Man that looks great.  Did you buy the 'joists' (I assume that is what it is called for the gable area) or did you build them?

    I have a similar setup. Highly recommend a metal roof and a ceiling fan. Looks great.

    Thanks guys. Been working on it a couple hours each night. Taking me forever.  Cant wait until its done.

    No, I built the joists. I am cheap.

    jeroldharter, I plan on doing a ceiling fan but why the metal roof? Was thinking about going with regular shingles?

    Metal is expensive but I did not need a huge quantity. I like the durability. It sheds snow easily. I like the sound of rain. I have a hip roof with rafters so the metal roof was screwed directly to the rafters - did not need sheathing so that offset the cost somewhat. Just my preference.
  • mikeb9550mikeb9550 Posts: 95
    No im just mikeb9550. sorry...

    Thanks jerold.. I was originally looking at fire resistance when I read shingles can withstand 2 ours of burn time. But then I also ready that you can strip the roof with 1x4s instead of sheathing. That would be easier. Will have to price it out. I dont need much either.

    Thanks for the tips.
