Roof Trusses

First Bundle of Trusses Takes Flight
The roof trusses arrive, and are craned onto the top of the building.

Luckily the delivery truck was able to make it up the driveway - I was plenty worried about that.  If not, the overhead wires along the street would have limited the use of the crane, and the trusses might have needed to be lifted by hand, one at a time.

Next we cut a little detail into each the rafter tails, and then can start moving them into place.
