Don't know if the coon is in the trap or in the attic still, but Betty is a little less flighty today.
I am going to build a different door for it when I do the roof replacement, as the facia board would prevent the door from opening.
The scope of work is expanding.
I will build the door as a direct replacement for the existing one but I might cover it with some of the leftover steel panel I have here. Will have to get new hinges, a way to hold it closed and some weather stripping to tighten it up.
Next summer, I might add a solar powered ventilator to the roof to see if it will help keep the shop cool. But that would only happen if I rebuild the whole roof structure.
