    Those work, but when you start hammering on them, you'll stretch the holes which makes it easier for bolts to pull through (remember my #1 point of failure?). That's why I like to use the all-thread to draw them together. Down side is that it's a whole lotta screwin and not much loving...

    I don't get the downside ...

    Raining at the son's place now and supposed to rain some tomorrow, so not likely to get to tin the roof for a couple days.

    Got 4 sheets of tin on the roof, then had to quit due to dark clouds coming in. Try again tomorrow.

    The winds hit 25mph 15 minutes after I left. Pretty good timing. Rain was 10 minutes later.

    About 6 sheets of tin left for the south side. North side will likely be a little slower since it does not face the sun for the frost or dew to melt as soon as the south side.

    Son's 20V Dewalt charger **** the bed, so he came to town to get a new charger and picked up a Dewalt cordless shear to cut tin. Seems I wore him out yesterday. His legs are sore, so no work today.

    You weren't kidding he has never been on a ladder so much, he would be worn out half way through the day here. Well y'all can do half the work or quarter of the work or something besides going up and down a ladder, I'm sure something else needs to be done like the siding/vapor barrier, doors or windows...

    They make box/open that same end for lining up holes. Very handy for setting beams 😀.

    We are back on for tomorrow. He got 2 more bags of screws and a new helper for tomorrow so there will be 3 of us. Next will be the north side of the roof.

    Looking forward to seeing your roof finished. Tough work in the wind and cold.

    I seen the old gal roofing last longer. Now add paint on top of roof. They only guessing at the life from gal roofing. .
    Just re-paint roof in 30 or 40 years will add 40 more years.

    FYI Do cut holes near the eve , only at the rig/top of roof . Caulking will dam the roof and water comes inside.

    Locally there is a six month wait for metal roofing. Apparently comes from Korea.

    The metal on my pole barn roof I’m putting up is 56 years old and counting, I plan on spray painting it with some aluminum roof paint.

    My house and 4 outbuildings are all tin roofs. Most have been replaced 3 times in 15 years due to hail. Insurance covers all the replacements.

    Finished up the south side of the roof tin. Was only off 1/2" of square. The gable end trim comes out 4" so good to go. Got 1/3 of the north side roof tin on. Was 3 of us. Winds were good till noon.

    If you compare an old sheet of galvanized to a new one, there's a definite difference in shine. What you will be painting on is actually a layer of oxidation that isn't conducive to retaining paint. We had special vinyl wash primers for galvanized panels (like the cowl of a Ford Pinto which was somewhat ironic since it was everything else on the car that rusted...) that we used under the regular primers, but even they were somewhat hit and miss. I've seen galvanized grain bins painted near the Great Lakes where everything gets corroded, and the peeling paint really didn't look any better, or protect the building any better, than the failing galvanized. I know you'd like your new shed to look nice and new, but painting galvanized might not be the best move.
