The overlong support post on the outside wall has been cut to the proper length and a two-by-six header has been levelled and nailed across the inside of the support posts for the outside wall; this header will later be secured with lag bolts and washers. The roof substructure has been built and has been positioned prior to being lifted into place. This substructure consists of another two-by-six header and six rafters. The "top" end of each rafter has been cut to an angle based on the desired pitch of the roof and the "bottom" end of each rafter has been birds-eye-cut to seat on the header of the outside wall, and all of the rafters have been pre-attached to the header that will be attached to the inside wall.
