Installation of roof panels would be next after you just finish the shed wall constructions, install the frame first to support the roof and then you can make the final roof settled down easily! Modify extra pallet boards to install the roof panels, here it has also been done the same!
Finish up the roof and use extra wooden slats to make the roof sides look solid, it would be a total trimming of roof you are to do here!
