In theory you could position a lead balloon over your build site and use that like an umbrella.

The key is to laminate the lead, like mylar!

All I know about Oregon weather is from Grants pass, driving through the grass farms mid state where it always seems rainey and Portland where weather comes either warm and wet or cold and wet....

I built cabinets professionally, and didn't bother with tolerance. Just cut all the horizontals at the same time without changing the table setting.

Otoh, at the sheet metal place, with a 5 ton male pattern 9 foot diameter, 10 degrees of warmth would make almost .25" oversized parts.

You must have bad luck with weather. In the months of July and August Portland has an average of 7 days with rain with total accumulation of less than 1.5 inches. Even from June - September the average is only 4.6 inches.

The first year I moved here was an exceptionally good summer. I arrived May 20th and it might have rained once a month from then until September. Mild temperatures and no wildfires. So far that hasn't been replicated.

I recall one year with 60 days without rain. Don't remember which year or whether that's a record.

People started getting nervous, then relieved.
