Side Awning – The Big Cover Up

Here is the front “big” awning. We attached a frame for the awning to a metal building the same way we did the other awning; We used the self sealing metal roof screws to attach the brackets to the side. The brackets are screwed into the 2×6’s used to frame the building. VERY secure!
I wanted to show a better shot of how we did the footings with the 4×4 brackets. We used the 12 inch round forms 2 feet long with 2 1/2 bag cement each
The framing is pretty much the same as the other awning, except the cross beam 2×4’s are set in between the 2×6’s and we used metal braces to help support:
Here is a shot with all the framing done and the brackets on.
Started attaching the metal roofing:
Here is a shot with all the roofing on:
Still need to add the end and side flashing. Will do the electrical next

The Front Awning – Just a little cover-up

My side walk thru door was getting hammered with rain creating the potential for mold. To help keep everything dry, we built an awning.
I could not find info on how to attach a frame for an awning to a metal building, here is what we did. I used the self sealing metal roof screws to attach the brackets to the side. The brackets are screwed into the 2×6’s used to frame the building. VERY secure!
Then we drilled holes and bolted the 4×4’s to the brackets set in concrete and started framing.
For extra support I cut and drilled 4×4’s for side support:
Then finished up the framing:
Here it is with the metal sheets attached.
Still need to add the end and side flashing, but in my opinion the big part is done.

Road Base for the Shop

We got some road base for the front of the shop:
Borrowed my buddies Kabota
and started the leveling
 Tacked down some 4×4 and got it a level as I could.
Notice the cement footings and the brackets, we will be using those for the awning.
