I picked up the metal for my shop roof yesterday. With all the trim, ridge cap and screws it was $1764.86, I still need to purchase the OSB, foam board and 2"x4" to add the underlayment. If the weather holds out I may have a roof by the first of Nov.

Sounds great, just in time before winter. thumbs_up So, what's the plan OSB, foam, 2x4's and then metal? Just curious as I've never installed a metal roof on a typical trussed type of roof. My shop has purlins that run horizontally which the metal is fastened to.

We finished up the front half of the roof. The foil backed insulated board should really help with the summer heat and humidity. The steel roofing went pretty quick.

Well I made some serious progress over the weekend. We closed in the back portion of the roof and added the ridge cap. I will sheet in the sides in the coming weeks, I still haven't decided on the type of siding to use. I'm not really a fan of Hardy board and hate vinyl, rough cut is to costly. I will figure it out.

In the meantime I'm working on the layout for my power. After some head scratching and a few words of confidence from Alvin I decided to add a quad box every 4 ft along the wall with there the workbenches will be. I will dedicate one for 220v for the welder and the rest for equipment. The panel I have has enough spaces to allow me to separate heavier Amp loads and still run quad boxes. As a temporary I have added a couple of LED light and just wired them into the shed power, lights are a great help these days.

I'm ready to start using some of the tools and equipment I have and not need to pack everything back into my shed at the end of the day.
