How many blocks for shed


I'm sure it will rain, probaby every day while it sits there waiting for the door, windows, and siding... Just because that's my luck. I plan on covering the door opening with a tarp so the floor will stay fairly dry but that wouldn't make much since if the roof is going to leak anyway due to lack of shingles.

As long as the felt is on good, and it doesn't pouring rain/windy as heck, you still should be okay.
A little water won't hurt it too much, I don't think.
I have this huge tarp....... ....if it were me, I'd tarp over the whole thing and weight it down until the weekend.

How many blocks for shed


Here are some pictures of how they framed the roof. I am not sure why but it seems they did a little over kill and prevented me from having a loft that I have been telling everyone I wanted from the start. Anyway, can someone explain why they did this? The 2 boards going across the beams are also nailed to each beam.

I realize it's probably confusing since everything looks the same in the picture but basically I want to take down the middle beam going straight across so I can have a decent loft space. There are 5 going across total along with the 2 2x6s going across all 5 of them. Would it make the roof unstable if I removed the middle board? I hope this makes since.

Bump

Also, my shed is sitting with no siding or paper on it and only has paper on the roof with no shingles yet. This morning it rained pretty hard for a good 2 hours and all I pictured when I tried to go back to sleep was my shed falling apart like particle board when it gets wet. Shed looks good but I didn't have time to go back there and really check it out before work. It should be okay right? I have a tarp covering the door opening since there is no door yet so hopefully the inside stayed dry.
