Trusses...Ready or Not!

The crane just arrived.   (Noon)

Setting the plywood on the second level saved a lot of lifting.

The gable truss was built on the ground.

The plywood and barge rafters are installed on the ground.

Six at a time

Up, Up, and away!

Tyler Wilson and Associates  installed our trusses on the second story...The students watched from accross the street.  Total crane time...90 minutes.  You can not beat a man in his own trade!

Experience is the Education

After a saftey lesson, the students back filled the foundation.  FYI:  The foundation came through unscathed,  without a blemish.   Yup,  no scars.    I knew they could do it!
