Hey there just wondering your thoughts, just framed a 50x50 shop stick frame 16oc and getting ready to put the steel on, my question is does it matter if I install walls before roof, I know that there is risk with damaging the siding of steel but I don’t think we will just curious if it does anything structure wise to do it this way instead we just have a bad storm on the way so over the next week it would be nice to get the walls done

I'll just state the obvious.
It's easier to work inside a building after the roof is on.
But you can't put the roof on until the structure is square and solid enough to support the roof.

A roof with open sides is roughly shaped like an airplane wing.
