    Me myself and I, you can find someone to hold your nuts while you turn the wrench, I tend to hold my own nuts while wrenching.

    I get slammed for taking a long time working things out. Is what it is. I'm figuring you've done the same.

    I'm thinking that you'll have absolutely 0 problems with snow load,, providing you have a series of warm days to make the snow slide off the roof. (I used to live in Durango, Co.........so I do know what snow load means,, and how to deal with it)

    I do wonder about straight line winds pressing against the side of the roof.

    Are there some purlins in the future? Something to support the sides of the roof in a good wind.

    I'm familiar with quonset hut design, and the corrugations are pretty deep.........not like the grain bin tin. I'm wondering if you have enough stiffness there.

    Don't get pizzed...........I'm just wondering. I'm not meaning to be an azzhole, like the people that like to jump on the pile when I got something going. I'm just asking a civil question.
    There is 5 sheets per a ring on my design, one of those 5 is supported by the ridge (18 gauge sheet) the other 4 (2 on each side) are 20 gauge I highly down any wind is going to flex 2 sheets of 20 gauge corrugated steel especially when one side is bolted to a pipe.
    So far we have had up to 60 mph winds and they haven't budged, doubt snow will affect anything as I can stand on them and they don't flex or budge.

    We're supposed to get colder and more snow too... but I see there's areas in Montana that are having big probs with grass fires as well (burned out part of a town). I guess you just take the weather and roll with the punches. I've tried working on metal when it's cold before though... not fun. I have a grain bin that needs some sheets replaced, but it's waiting for next year now.

    It's all you can do, so far 2 snow storms this fall, plenty of strong winds and temperatures down to 10 degrees and dropping more as time goes on. Started this in the middle of record breaking winter temperatures, will probably finish it as such. Hardened from years in service and combat so weather isn't too bad, just have to slow down as it hits the hardest.

    Apparently you can't assemble parts with butyl tape below 30 degrees Fahrenheit, it freezes up and won't squish right causing fasteners to become lose when it thaws. As if high wind's weren't a factor enough, now frozen butyl tape is.

    Been slowing down on the son's shop too. Weathered in now so winds not a factor, just low temps. All will come when it comes.

    Having wind, snow and low temperatures all at once right now. Had death in family spent last 3 weeks away from project and I came back to this... I think this winter is going to be worse than last year since it hit earlier, December instead of February. Got about 6 inches of snow on the ground as it, trying to pick the pieces up and get direction again.
