Rafters Are Up

I think it looks friggen good, don’t you? I didn’t help too much with the roof because I was working. Dad spent all the time measuring and figuring out awkward angles. He made a master and I cut a few from that, but the rest of the rafters were cut and put up by Dad. There is a gap where the rafters meet the walls, but we don’t know what happened there. Mum just said to not make the rafters for my house the same way Dad did 😛

Next up: sheathing, then shingles, and then the hardest part: the door. We’re not going to put siding up; stain will work well enough.
