Posting this 6 months later takes me by surprise
Since you seemed to be asking the question one day...then posted pics of the complete project the next day
Most people probably thought you were finished & did not need any more assistance
Of course some people aren't too good at looking at the post dates

Thank you for showing us the completed project! Some on here have on-going projects that don't take criticism well, unlike you. I hope you will make some changes or at least have a local knowledgeable person help to be sure it's safe for your area. Snow loads, etc. already mentioned. Most of us want to help posters "get it done" safely and with a measure of quality. Feel free to ask again on your next project! We are here to help....

Gary

And some people can read the date of the posts Gary
You don't wait 6 months after posting pics if you still have questions
I'd say some people just don't like the extreme obvious being pointed out to them
Nothing to do with criticism as you well know

I didn't build it my self I had some one build it for me. He has been building for 30 years and I trust him. The 4x4 are construction grade and are sunk 4 feet in the ground with sonitubes and concrete. The rafters are 2x6 16 on center and the cross beamed are 2x8 bolted together with knee braces.

The ceiling is 2 sheets of obs and that was what was recommended. I will eventually install a cedar tongue and grooved ceiling.
