Huge Progess on Bamboo Barn

As I build the Tiki barn I have been designing many areas as I go, this weekend was focused on how the roof was going to be engineered and tightening up lashings and securing support beams along with the loft.

I believe I've figured out how the whole thing is going to be finished now.

I will have just enough bamboo to make it!

Thank god, really don't want to go cut anymore down right now. 
 Next week I should be able to start installing the thatch roofing materials.
