|Truss and Roof
We received the trusses today.
Pic 1 - The first delivery of trusses - Carport and
piggyback trusses for the main roof.
Pic 2 - 5 - The main trusses finally showed up. It'll
be pretty cool seeing these huge trusses go up.
Jack and Sons arrived today to set the trusses.
They were able to get all of the trusses set in place
in 7 hours. Not bad when their 64 feet from end to
end and weigh ~500 ponds each. The wind
cooperated for all but the last one. We had to set
the East Gable end back down and add additional
bracing in order to get it to hold up to the wind.

Jack and Sons has been out the past couple of
days working on the bracing, blocking and
sub-facia for the trusses. It's surprising how much
lumber is needed for this.
