Got the double 2x6's done. Worked out great. Only one post was a little short (1"). Also started putting up the rafters. Looked at the price of tin at home depot and almost had a heart attack. $22 for a 10'x2' piece. We'll need around 42 pieces... Yikes!
So, I started out building the double 2x6 on the ground. Went to lift it a realized that was a big mistake. No biggie though. I split it in half and put them up with my wife's strong back helping (gotta love German women).
Beam, before we split it.
Still not sure what to do on the front. Would like to make a little covered porch, but there are large doors on the barn that open outward. The recently framed in part will be the main entrance to the run. Used hurricane straps/ties to attach the rafter. Going to do rafters every 24".
Let me know if you see anything where we could improve.
