It really did grow that way.
#1: I worked at blocking off the spaces between the rafters where they intersect the upper side walls. There must be a real name for these, but to me it's rafter blocking; keeps the weather and birds out, the insulation in. I installed some of those durovent foam plastic thingies to allow the insulation to be packed in and still have ventilation from the soffits. #2: Now then, those members/guests with long memories will recall my harsh opinionated comments regarding pocket doors some time back. http://countryplans.com/smf/index.php?topic=3818.msg43974#msg43974Yes, that is a pocket door frame.
#1: Generally installed before the sheathing goes on the roof. Way easier #2: Did you review the pocket door thread I did? Seems maybe you didn't , those wood frames tend to be more trouble some. And have lesser / not as good wheels and track. Use a hollow core door , less weight, less strain on those attaching / weak parts. You probably get more annual rain then we do here. So much for nicer weather, eh!
