Well done, at this rate you'll be definetely ready before it starts snowing and so you' ll be able to shelter  rolling stock and others pieces of equipment to make room in the shop.

An up-coming part of the roof work is the design, construction and placement of the 3 smoke jacks. The jacks are an integral part of each stall and special framing may be needed where they are installed.

Will the smoke jacks be welded up or simply sheet metal?

Over the work weekend all the fascia boards and soffits were completed around the building. The exterior casing was put on the windows.

Now that we know how to do it I think it would have been neat to rivet those support posts together.  :D

Are the Smoke Jacks going to be ventilating or non-ventilating?  See attached jpg.

That's a pretty dramatic photo!  Good use of shadow.

I think standing it's Steve Leet, Jay Barta, and Steve Lennox.  I can't figure out the sitter is on the left, but the sitter on the right looks like it might be Randy.  Am I right?

(Normally I'd say one of the sitters would be Fred supervising, but I doubt Fred wanted to get on the roof)
