        memmike, I know this is my dumb, but I would like to learn new construction techniques, so do you mind if I ask: What is it about your roofing system that allows it to get by with less support between the rafters than I would normally expect to see? Am I wrong? Am I wrong?

            It's looking good Mike. When it's all done your wife will never see you much because you will be in the shop.
            I stay in mine more than the house for sure.

                I believe our specs are different further north. Probably because of the snow load.

                  I bet you are right, because all the metal buildings here for farmers and businesses are dun this way, very strong there are 2 2x4 in each run between the rafters Mike, and the metal roofing is a heavy gage :thumbsup:

                    When I got my building permit I ask what the codes were and they said they didn't care how I built it.

                        Around here, removing the humidity is the key. 85° and dry is quite comfortable.

                            Sure is better than a window open with a fan running.

                                      Sorry Mike I meant 12' tall, I'm 6" deep but well insulated.
                                      Don't need ac in the garage would only need it a few days a year. But where you live you seldom use heat I would guess.
