Got the porch framing almost done. Got the tin ready to go on the roof.
This has been on hold due to hunting season.

My ONE man operation is back on again. I've been putting the tin up which is very challenging. The roof pitch is 8/12 which is quite steep. I have about 3/4 done [/[URL=http://s812.photobucket.com/user/moonlighter69/media/C92944E1-D9DF-452F-88FD-3493FDAAD5B0_zps7rjnsfyy.jpg.html]

I posted a couple pics of my wild LA Iris collection which have just started to bloom. Red ones grow in certain parts of the state.. in the wild. The white ones are from my friends teal hole. They are a color oddity of the Giant Blue Flag variety. I have a few true red ones that have not bloomed yet. This ain't duck related, I know but they are part of the shack site.

A pond that I planted with all sorts of stuff that I collected from marsh, swamp and road side ditches. The Cypress trees were one year old bare root seedlings from the State Ag dept. sale. I dug a few Pond Cypress locally. They grow pretty fast. The water shield (dollar lilly) is an uninvited guest that I need to spray. Tons of other plants that I put but I wont bore y'all with that.

No gators yet. We are miles away from any substantial creeks; although one of my neighbors got one last year about 6 foot.  Pretty amazing.

I wished my shed was in a place that with that kind of scenery.  Very nice view.

As far as gators....way too many around me already. :)

That looks pretty awesome . . . except for the gators. Screw that. I like the Irises though.

I wasn't all that good in math clbooty... but isn't 8/12 about the same as 2/3? :D  Seems like it would make calculating measurements easier... then again, I never took construction clbooty, at all!
