Cut the upper halves of the braces today. Measured and marked for an 8" chop (going to see how that looks but might up it to a 9" - 10" but have to see the look of the 8" chop first). Tomorrow I hope to remove the upper door jambs and then cut the roof off and then cut the sides......getting excited to start the cutting!!!

Nice use of bed frames also! Keep us updated.
