I was camped at a truck stop near indianapolis in my 5th wheel trailer, heading to Texas. It was during the first week of January in 2003.
One hell of a blizzard blew straight in from the west.
Of course, with my luck and brains, the one night that i decided to winter camp in Indiana, must have been the storm of the century!
Seriously though, I have no concern about your rafters, wonder about the beam load!
Have you checked the span tables for your area, for the proper size?

I really feel as though it is fine, if you notice there is approx 6' between the post after bracing, while this is not standard framing practice ,I think it is fine for wood shed. let's just gamble on this and say finish it it's fine and dandy!lol........

it would probably would be wise to run up the sides with whatever you are going to side it with? steel? it is free standing so it doesn't have alot of horizontal support like a deck connected to a house. you can use staples or screws or nails obviously screws are easiest to remove.

How to sheet and shingle a shed roof


Thanks for all the replies, I got lucky and found a young man on craigs list who put the top on my shed for me. I am not able to do much due to a knee replacement that went bad and cant get around good yet. Its as done as I need for now, will keep my firewood dry as it seasons.

Thanks again,

Shipper
