Framing the Roof & Sheathing the House

Here are some pictures of me installing the rafters and then adding sheathing (plywood) all over the house. I decided on half inch plywood as a compromise between wanting to add strength and yet not add too much weight. I also went with BC plywood as the standard “sheathing” had too many knots. On the front wall I used 5/8 plywood to add a little more strength where the house would be catching the most wind.
