Step-by-Step Instructions:

Attach the Roof Panels

Watch video of this step.

Fasten the 13” roof framing members to the inside edges of the rooflines of the front and back panels, flush with the edges. Position each framing piece halfway between the top (peak) and bottom of the angled roofline cut. Secure the framing with three 1-1/4” galvanized wood screws driven through the plywood and into the framing.

Position the roof panels on the box, making sure that the front and back overhangs are even and that the joint of the panels at the roof peak is tight. Fasten the panels to the roof framing members using 1-1/4” galvanized wood screws.
