This picture shows the rafters on and the starting of the purlins being put on the top of the rafters for roof support and is what the metal roofing is screwed to.

Here is where it started to get complicated for me. I was looking for a 12×16 cabin but once I looked at it, I decided I wanted the whole 12×16 for floor space so I added a 4-foot porch to the 12×16 to make it a 12×20 total building instead of a 12×12 inside living space.

I had to screw in  (36)  3×3/8 inch lag bolts to all the outer joist into the 4x4s for stability.

I have (20) 13-inch hurricane studs with 5/12 pitch angle cuts.
