    Your ceiling need's to be at least a 2X6 rafter, 16" on center. The 8 foot span will be to much for just a 2x4's. If you hang sheetrock on the lid then stack ply on top, the 2x4's will sag especially if you stow things on top.

    Thanks, Steve. Still a long way to go though......
    Metal for the roof, ceiling, sub floor, hardwood flooring, pull electrical/lighting, drywall, interior/exterior paint, so on and so forth. Already have the windows/door & hardware.
    So far, it looks like I'm squeaking in just a hair under what I budgeted the exterior for.

    I really am concerned as to whether the 2x6 rafters will be adequate for the expected snow load... hopefully you'v got 1/2inch sheathing...!!

    I like the look of the sheet metal! It reminds me of the PNW. :D
    Add to the fact that even crappo 25yr shingles are are $27 at HD, I'd need 6/7 bundles for a cost of approx. $200.
    I got 10 forest green, cut to length, 45yr sheets AND the 14'1" ridge cap from a local mfg. for $257. Better deal to me.
    With the added strength, maybe I could have a helipad.

    Dave....roof sheathing is 19/32".:)

    Metal roof, sprinkler, hose and kiddie pool in the summer. Now we know what all the roofing 2x6's are for!

    Yesterday's progress.
    Starting to come together nicely. I'll pick up the sheet metal Monday afternoon (hopefully).
    Lots of piddly, but important things to do; spackle, finish priming, etc.
    BTW....never drop a partially filled 5gal. bucket of primer off the top off a 12' ladder!:mad: 1shed29.jpg

    Haven't seen nor heard you mention a/c or heat pump... w/o that you'll need to upgrade the beer cooler...
