I am 57 years old and I have never undertaken any project this size or complex in my life. I would call myself kinda handy, but before this I had never built anything. I do painting, gardening, have installed a couple sprinkler systems and ceiling fans and done some minor drywall repair and plumbing.
I would have never even considered doing this project without Henry and the Videos! I must have watched the roofing video 5 times and it finally came together. The plans come in very handy as they help you get an overall sense of what you are trying to do in each step. I did 99.9% of this by myself, (well my fiance did hold a wall for about 2 minutes one time) The tricks and tips Henry gives really do work just like in the video.
The entire project took me about 6 weeks working 3 hours every evening after work and 10 to 11 hours each day on Sat and Sun. My ground prep required about a weeks worth of work as it was not flat at all to start. I did make the trusses longer than Henry did in the video as I though it would look a little better. Anyone with some building knowledge in the least could build this much quicker than I did.
Now that it is done and I have rested, I am proud of myself. Thank you Henry for taking the time to make these videos allow someone who really didn’t have the skills to build a very high quality project that will undoubtedly last for 20 years or more.
