    Not sure yet. My goal this fall was to get it framed up and a roof on it. Next summer I'll enclose it and add some doors and windows.

    Open for ideas for the sides.

    Well, a roof over your head IS good.
    For siding you can use 1-11, board & batten or many other choices. If it can be seen near your house, you might even want to side it to match your home.

    Looking gooood! You will wonder how you ever survived without it! Keep at it almost time to move the evaporator in and tap.
    I love the look of the cupola but wanted less steam, so we went with stacks. Your doing great Keep boiling!
