If wind is such a concern while building the OBS what is going to hold the roof on the tracks in the wind?? Did I miss something?

Just wanted to follow up on this build. It's been nearly 3 years and it's still standing strong.

One recommendation, I wish I had done a better job of sealing/staining the exposed wood as it's beginning to show age, but is still functional.

Hi

I have done something similar but noticed that humidity appears and then it rains inside.

Have you insulated it somehow?

thanks
