Congratulations Scott, glad we could be part of the ten year gala BYO #168 is the best investment I have made since getting back into the hobby. May you continue to house people under the stars for many years to come...

Clear Skies,
Brian

Congrats!

I am considering a BYO and I just E-mailed some questions in via the website E-mail. Hopefully, I'll help start off the next 10 years.

Scott H,
Have you ever done an observatory attached to the side of an existing building, say a garage?

Thanks!

Hi folks. My apologies but the e-mail link in my original post didn't work.

Hi Jason. missed answering yours too. We've done it a few times. Just depends on if it's practical for the existing building we're attaching to. We can generally come up with the design via e-mailing pics or drawings.

I can say this much and that is Scott you do an admirable job on your workmanship. In the above add-on does the gable roof nestle in under the existing roof line fairly snug or a foot below. Does it then abut right up to a rubber gasket like feature that has side wall flashing incorporated above it? Probably several different takes dependant on the type of weather I'd think. Mike

Thanks Mike. The roof fits pretty tight under the overhang of the other building.

But I'm honestly not sure what the stucco guys put where the roof butts to the wall. Weather Guard or some other rubber seal will do the trick.

Thanks Scott, after looking at our new lot's layout, I will be going with a stand alone. I will be calling you this summer some time to set it up I hope!

Very nice stuff. Wish I had a place to put an observatory. Too many dang trees.
