I built the rafters and installed them with 6" screws and hurricane straps (Fig. 6). The siding is 5/8" T1-11 siding is really heavy, but I managed to get that up and nailed securely. Most of the connections were made with 2"/3"/3.5" deck screws as there isn't any power for the pneumatic nail gun. Furring strips were installed in preparation for the metal roof.

FINAL UPDATE 1/14/14
The doors were mounted and the shed trimmed using treated 1x6" lumber, ripped in half. The shed was stained in late October, this time by hauling the generator up to the garden and using a power paint sprayer. It took longer to set-up and clean the painter than it did to paint (Fig. 7).

The metal roofing came in later that week, and was installed without too much hassle. I got it on mostly correctly, but this is the first time I've installed this sort of roofing, so it isn't too bad. I don't have a picture of the final product, but one will appear soon.
