The plan is to get all the beams and rafters up and then tarp the whole thing with a section of a horse riding arena tarp.  Super heavy duty.  I'll put grommets in every 3 feet or so and tie or screw it down as needed.
If you are still looking into tarp options, here is a possibility -

I tried several of those guys but they either never called back or didn't have any on hand at the moment.  I picked up a covered riding arena "tarp" free off of CL.  They cut it into 3 pieces to remove and I took two of them.  They about bottomed out my truck springs with the helper springs - well over 1,500 pounds.  The "small" one made a 40' 5th wheel camper cover (front/back & sides, too), a 22' boat cover, several LARGE lumber stack covers and a bunch of small equipment covers.  I saved the largest just for this. IIRC, it is something like 60' x 90' - it filled up the cul-de-sac that I live on.  When rolled up, it takes two to drag it and a truck crane to lift it!
