I appreciate all the remarks. I actually modeled the building after an old country store that I discovered in Alabama. I wanted the overhang roof without support poles and I didn't need it to stick too far out in my yard ! I documented the entire building process if anyone wants any photos of anything...and I am not finished yet. lol Merry Christmas to all you petroholics ! Dave

I had to comment again. It just looks great. I keep looking at the pictures. You really captured things with that open rafter roof design. Good job! Looks like a great place to hang out!

Here are some photos of the overhang. A little overkill on the construction, but it is my OCD manifesting itself. I did not want to be encumbered by support columns. Beams are balanced at midpoint, tied into the structure with hurricane straps, and braced for additional support and aesthetics. You can climb all over the overhang with no movement. lol Dave

That is really cool, I would love to see it in person some day. Is the concrete thick enough? Looks like it is about a foot thick.


FREEDOM oil items wanted.
