    Good going!

    However it is alot of weight to be put on the 2 x 4's to take on the weight of the roof itself. You could put the guide board back on there to support the beams of your roof to make it more stable across the front and back. I am not a builder but I can spot a problem or two.

    Anyone else can help out?

    It's really not as much weight as it looks like. Besides... when the next layer of 2x4's goes on it will be very strong.
