Step Two Putting Up The Tin

    Step 2: Putting up the tin
    We happened across a stash of 25 20ft tin roofing panels that were left over from when we reroofed the barn about 15 years ago. This allowed us to avoid needing to purchase plywood for the sides. We were so excited with this find that we didn't stop to think that we should put the sides up before the roof, so we had some last minute adjusting to do. We ended up needing to cut the side panels in half to slide them in. There is also a tin ridge vent covering the gap at the peak. The panels on the side don't meet the roof: this way they provide ventilation through the winter when the windows are closed.
