Hi All

yes it was a big oops, I was laying the roofing tiles and the end was in sight and guess what? yes the roof was the wrong way round!!!  so there I was was removing the tiles, then came the fun of cleaning of the glue, this took ages, I think if I had more tiles I would of ended up throwing them away, but being on a budget could not do this so I carried on.
finally I got both sides of the roof tiled. Now I need to wait for them to dry so I can begin to make them look like real roofing tiles, I had already painted the roof grey so that any gaps would not show as white.

I had a problem that I had been thinking about for a few days, how was I going to get inside the shop when I put the final wall and roof on? first I thought should I make one of the walls hinged? or the roof hinged? I finally decided on the roof, this seemed the easiest, I have got to find hinges now, how is it that one thing leads to another!!

I continued on with my shelving, I have to wait for the glue to dry before I can get on with putting the shelves on, handy tip, if you have items that are to big for your clamps but you need to hold them in place, use masking tape, this does not leave any sticky residue and more important does not remove any paint when removed.

here are the photos,

the roof tiles, the right way round

this is the shelf being held together with the masking tape
