the new double garage: days 3, 4 and 5

We missed days three and four of the work on the new double garage.  So sue us.  We went on a long scheduled car club trip to exotic New Albany, Indiana (with side trips to even more exotic Louisville Kentucky), and I took a lot of pictures of things other than the process of building a garage and also wrote another hunk of “Spider Time” which I will post starting tomorrow.

By late this afternoon, the new double garage had a proper roof, shingled in Weathered Wood shades of brown and grey.  I hope everyone thinks this is tasteful, because there are not a lot of color choices in Menards “let’s not go overboard on this; it’s just a garage” range of shingles.
