Just finished a project to re-roof this shed so it can become my studio evenings and weekends… Definitely enjoyed the project, but absolutely overjoyed it is finally finished and feeling a bit like I got beaten up after the last push! Random grab bag of photos from the build…


Congratulations!! Very happy for you two!!
