If time is money, this is becoming very expensive real estate. Time to finish the barn roof. We started by installing the overhang on the gable ends. 2X4 "lookouts" have to be cut, notched, and spaced just right to mate with the sheathing that will eventually cover them. Since the fascia boards must follow the curve of the arched roof, they had to be custom-made by tracing and cutting a curved shape out of larger boards. Slow work! With the overhang finished, we started putting up sheets of 1/2" plywood, which were clamped and nailed to conform to the curved roof.
