Update
Weather still not cooperating here. Silage cover still holding up, so at least the shop is dry. Hope to get started next week. Weather forecast better, but not counting on it.
Dan.

Started the clean up of the old roof, today.
The weather forecast looks favorable for the next week to ten days. Need to check on a few things before proceeding on the reframing part of the job .
I want to raise the ridge line but not change the pitch. That would allow for more storage space in the attic.
I am going to install a light tube to get daylight into the shop also.
Dan.

Finished cleaning up the debris from the old roof, burnt all the old wood, stockpiled the old shingles and disposed of the nail infested ashes.
I then made inventory of my building materials, should have all the white wood needed for this project.
Yesterday, I got started demoing the last part that needed to be gone before rebuilding the roof could start.
New construction has started. Did not get everything done I wanted to, but the weather forecast looks good for this week
If the weather cooperates, I should have the new roof on by Sunday.
Dan.

Working between weather fronts and injuries, but there is progress to report.
The demo is complete, the new framing is almost done and the silage cover is back on for now.
Not enough time to take pictures of the progress while working on it.
Here are photos of the progress.
When the weather improves, I will finish the framing.
Dan.

Weather was iffy on Wednesday, so I closed up the gap in top of the wall that was left when the floor extension was built. I used the drops from the steel roofing that is on the north side of the roof.
It rained here on Thanksgiving, so no progress was made. Tomorrow is supposed to be rain free so I hope to get the framing done.
Dan.

Today was spent building the knee wall under the beam and correcting a mistake in the framing.
I installed a 2 × 4 plate on the floor then measured and cut the studs. I then toe nailed them in.
Once that was done, then it was on to correcting the mistake in the framing. There should have been a 7" overhang on the front of the roof but it was done at 6" instead, teach me to go from memory. I pulled all the nails, removed the screws, and took the 2 × 8's off. Added a 32" section to the facia then cut the original board to correct the shortage.
I then installed edge purlin.
Tomorrow, I hope to get the gable end facia boards installed. Then put the plastic sheet back on as it is supposed to rain on Monday.
Dan.
