Is Santa Cruz near you? If you go to Metalmeet.com, you'll find they hold a meet there. If you go to the meet, you'll be done.
That's amazing you do that by hand. I'm picturing templates and a lot of measuring. When I got my house I KNEW the house my wife wanted wasn't for me cause I wanted the ones with a nice barn away from the house so I could do what I wanted in it, and I see it as a thorn in my backside, but I'll find a way. I'll check that site. Thanks!
