I know I should be further along in the build, but that's life. And, life has been great.
I now have the final shape of the building. I cut six inches from the depth, so now it's much more cottage-y. I've filled windows on both sides but still need to cut the new front wall openings.
I cut a new enclosed gable board to have more wall space inside. The roof now has two smaller matching skylights as well. I will be using the main roof beam but I don't want to cut it until I know exactly what I'll need for the back wall.
I plan to have a partially hinged back but the mdf kit wall is very heavy, so I will likely cut replacement parts from plywood.
