And we almost have a roof now! I have three more sheets to hang, but need four. I somehow misfigured the coverage and are a sheet short. Left the headers long in case I wanted to extend it in the back farther, so if I do that, will need about three more sheets. Has been hot as heck climbing up and down the ladders and manhandling the sheets, but got a lot of progress done this weekend. Wife got to use it last night, she went and got us supper and it was raining when she got back, so she just whipped right in and didn't have to get wet coming into the house, she was tickled to say the least! I figure about one more weekend and I'll have the top on, then I can do a final inside cleaning and get a load of rock. Sorry for the slightly fuzzy pics, humidity is super high and the camera lens was fogging up as soon as I took it outside.

Did you have to deal with inspections or building codes where you live?
The only thing i can do on my own beside concrete slabs is a maximum 10x12 shed.

That's why I moved where I did... no inspectors & no inspections! There's only one inspection here... for a septic system but that's it! In Houston it took me 4 months to get permits (just permits) to build a carport (no elec) & another 3 months to finish building because of inspections... ridiculous!!! Shouldn't have taken over a month total! Had to have detailed plans etc. Here... you just do what you want... when you want!

Your carport's lookin' good Bama! Always nice to have your stuff outta the weather!

Nope, I'm out in the county, outside of the city limits. Like Tripper said, only inspections are for sewer.

The next county close to me you can't build a dog house without a permit and site inspection!
