Done!

Well, I've been working on a 12x12 addition to my mini-barn, and it's finally done! ( and so am I)!..I told my wife this was my last project as it really whipped my butt!! Think I'll stick to trains. Here's some pictures of the day to day process.. I know this doesn't belong in the S scale threads, but I spend 99% of my time here, so here goes.

Nice work. I haven"t done any of that in awhile.

Why not 2x8's for the joists? 2x6 seems a little light even supported at the 6' mark.

Is it extra storage space?

I was thinking of that also but I was assured it would be ok. A 2x6 can span almost 10 feet, 16" o.c., without any additional support.

The 3/4" ply should make up for the 2x6's. It still should be plenty stiff.
