MORE PROJECT AND TIPS: This was a quick shed roof build to cover my air compressor and dust collection system. It has been too cold to paint so I pre-assembled and painted as much as I could in the shop. Then brought the components out to build it as quickly as possible. I think it went relatively well.

    Great job! But wait a minute. What are you standing on when you're walking on the rafters? It looks like there's boards underneath your feet but we can't see them. Like around 1:27.

    Great job! Did you use 2×4 or 2×6 for the rafters..? Also, was the board you attached to the garage to support the rafters a 2×6? Thanks!

    I like the first part of how you got the roof up by yourself using the temporary legs as leverage. What a great technique. Is it standard in the US or is it building code for roofing structures to always have plywood followed by asphalt and shingles as your roofing system? I see this a lot in US building videos.
