Securing the first sidewall.

The beauty of such a tall ceiling is we were able to make a loft for storage.

Next came rafters.
Then the windows and doors!
I just love these French Doors, plus they open wide for big items to be brought in for fixing up.

I never tire of retreating here to paint, mostly signs for my small website business!
