    Hell, I know you just posted this video, but I was just wondering when was
    this? Wasnt sure if this was last week or 6 months ago. Im thinking it was
    spring time, but just a guess.

    Great video and the result will be a “cupularoof”!!! It will shurely give a
    beautiful panoramic outlook! Very good to bend your sheetmetal yourself!
    Using this is much better then depend too much on silicon! Water stays out
    but you keep ventilation and silicon locks vapor up! Is there no way to
    keep the windowsides intact instead of cutting them of?

    You could cut off the side of the windows to make them fit and istall them
    tightly together and use a aluminium or pvc profile in the form of a T to
    mask the gap and use a silicon to seal it properly! Then kt will be solid
    and look nice and also help to support the construction and take pressure
    of the windows:-)

    What you also could consider is leaving one window on each side out and use
    them somewhere else! Your structure will stay much more ridged and you will
    have space in between the windows for the curtains:-) The space in between
    outside you can cover with metal sheet that you could paint green to match
    with the color of the roof!

    How are you going to insulate this wall since it is only made of
    practically plywood. Also what are you going to do when you come to your
    upright posts that are supporting the 2×12’s?

    Now I see why that part of the garage was left without siding. I thought
    you just ran out of money, but, I see I was wrong. You are putting in
    awesome windows rather than siding! I can’t wait to see the progress and
    the final shot from outside putting the whole garage in the camera frame.
