Dilapidated roof repair / Shop remodel

Postby CopperFiremist [OP] » July 15th 2016, 8:59pm

So our Shop Insurance company says are awning/roof was dilapidated and they would no longer insure us. What a blessing that was as I've wanted to repair this for the last decade and now the time has come. The plan is part deck and covered patio. We also took the old sign down above the shop and found some history behind it before we started painting the shop. We had some advertising deal with the local ACdelco distributor some 15 years ago.

Here you go WoodButcher

Let the Demo and remodel begin.
