    In the last pic you can see the dark cloud on the right. That cloud ended up being a snow squall with white out conditions. It dropped approx. 4″ of snow in 35 minutes. So after getting the plates all blown off. It is time to continue the set.

    Now we are moving along.

    So here i am playing in my office about 26′ above the subfloor. Nailing down the purlins and getting ready to put up the piggybacks.

    Well putting up the piggyback trusses is a slow process. The whole roof so far has been a slow process but what can you do.

    And framing has begun. There are a few areas to frame in on this roof. Hoping to have everything framed and sheet ready by tomorrow night. We lost today to rain. Again!

    Looks like you got a nice steep one there Joe. What pitch is that steep part? Looks to be about 16/12.

    It’s a dual pitch 12 and 13

    Wow no wonder it is going slow, it looks like a complicated roof.

    Looks like a busy roof, the weather should be cooperating for the next couple of days.

    Been so long since I have been on a steep one that yours seemed steeper. The last two roughs we have done have been 8/12 or less. Gonna be really scary when we finally get back on a monster pitch.

    It is so funny that in the pic’s don’t look so tall.

    They look a good 10 to 12 feet to me.. With the toppers on it’s way up there.
    When we have biggy backs here and that’s not often, they make us H2.5 the purlins to the bottom trusses and then H2.5 the top trusses to the purlins.

    That is a lot of roof. Good progress though. I am not jealous of having to work up high, or in the cold.

    OK sorry for slacking on updates it has been a hell of a week

    #605062

    Yep because everyone needs a dual pitch 24′ hip overlay in the back of their house
