I’m a DIY metal roofer who’s had the pleasure of building some pretty impressive structures over the past few years.
While most of my work is in the garage, I love building things that are more accessible, but also that will actually work for the people who live in them.
The DIY Metal Roofing Suppliers subreddit was my first stop, and it was pretty exciting to see so many DIYers out there building amazing structures.
This post is dedicated to my own DIY metal rooftop garage in my own basement.
I love it, and I plan to build another one in the future.
I was inspired to build this one because I found a piece of scrap metal from the old metal roof of my house that was worth a lot less than I was expecting.
The roof of this house is one of the most common roofing projects I do, and even though it was made out of scrap, I’m sure it would still work great in a DIY garage.
The metal roof was just so awesome.
I really want to build a metal roof again soon.
I have to admit, the first time I saw it, I thought it was a joke.
I mean, it’s just a metal pipe.
But I realized the joke wasn’t as funny when I saw the finished product.
This is the roof that I’m building right now.
I’ve been making it my whole life, and have been building a metal house for the past 8 years.
I have no idea what I’m going to build when I finally build my own metal house.
But now I’m not scared of it.
The first step is to build the metal roof, which is pretty simple.
I just cut a few strips of scrap from the metal that I already had laying around and put them in my sink.
I drilled a hole for the metal pipe, and then I put some foam padding in it.
I then taped the plywood to the sides of the pipe and let the roof sit for about a month.
When I put it together, it was kind of a mess, but I think I finally got the hang of it now.
There are a few things to consider before you start building a DIY roof.
First, you have to pay attention to the location of the metal.
When it comes to the ply wood, you need to keep the sides apart.
The sides of this metal roof will have holes where the ply is glued to the metal, so be sure to cut them out.
If you don’t, the metal will not adhere properly.
Next, you will have to make sure the metal meets the wood on all four sides.
If it doesn’t, it will crack and fall down.
This will also make the metal much easier to put together.
I usually have a drill and a file in the cabinet when I make my metal roof.
The plywood should be the most challenging part of the DIY metal house because of the amount of screws I have.
Most DIYers put a few screws in the roof so that it doesn’st slide around.
That means I have a little bit of work to do to make it as sturdy as possible.
I start by taking out the bolts on the top and bottom of the ply and putting them into the hole where I drilled the holes.
Then I take out the two screws that go to the roof bolts, and the two that go down the inside of the roof, and put those in the hole as well.
Next I take some foam and tape the ply on the roof.
I use a little piece of foam that I cut from my garage to hold the ply up to the wood.
The foam is just too big for this DIY metal attic, so I’ve cut some extra foam pieces for it, so that I can get it all to line up perfectly.
Next up is the metal floor.
This isn’t too much work, because you already have a metal floor for this project.
First you cut a piece that is a few inches long.
Then you cut the piece that will fit into the space on the bottom of your DIY metal basement.
Then, you cut two pieces that will be a few feet long.
These pieces will be connected to the wall and ceiling with some metal pipe that is about a foot wide.
Then that piece will be attached to the ceiling using metal tape.
Next you cut some screws in one corner of the foam that will go to hold it up to metal, and some metal wire that will run along the top of the frame.
This can be tricky because you don´t want to screw anything that will move, so make sure to make a good seal with the pipe before you attach it to the pipe.
Finally, you attach the ply to the frame using some screws.
I think it’s a good idea to get the screw threads on all the edges, so they won’t fall out.
You can see that the ply doesn´t look as good with the metal
