Much nicer. What are you putting on the roof?

Chris, steel roofing.
Terry, right now, it is raining. Snow is gone but we are supposed to get more tonight.
The black plastic is a silage cover, 18' × 18', least expensive way to cover the roof framing while waiting out this weather moving through.
Once the weather forecast improves, I will finish the demo and start framing the new roof structure.
Dan.

The pitch of the roof will change slightly from around 5/12ish to 4-1/2 / 12ish . With that change it needs heavier framing. So this side will take more time to finish.

Plastic silage cover still in one piece, had a few hours of lost sleep while the last cold front swept through the area.
I need to check the forecast to see when I can start on it again.

I would say your silage plastic roof will last you about 5 years or more. We had some that I used to cover up the garden to kill weeks. It was second hand and was out in the sun and snow for 2 years, then I folded it up, and recently used it as a groundsheet under the new mobile home.

Off the roof project, waiting for a tri-axle load of 2A to be delivered. Tired of potholes in the driveway.
Raining right now, have not looked at weather forecast for the week yet. So no plans to get the roof project back up and moving.
Still dry in the shop, silage cover still holding up to the weather.
Also debating sheeting the roof with 1/2" OSB, since it will be awhile before I can build the new shop.
Dan.

Update
Spent a couple of hours cleaning up the old shingles and wood from the roof. Putting them in an old bedliner for now, will get rid of them in the future.
