    Cool pics! That’s some serious building there. Neat that you make your own trusses on site.

    the trusses are 30 foot wide and about 10 feet tall. they’re setting on the top of the top beans which are 20 feet off the ground. if the lull doesn’t work nothing is moving. Based on the density of doug fir the trusses weigh around 3000 lbs. Lull is rated for 6000 so that part should work.

    That Lull would be perfect for putting up birdhouses 🙂

    At first I thought that a lull was overkill, but then I noticed the width of the trusses. Wow! That’s pretty impressive

    Are the trusses site built and if so, how are the joints fastened?

    Did you make the bents or were they fabricated for you? What a fun project!

    Some serious trusses. I do like the look of a timber frame home.

    They are put together with 3/8″ x 12″ structural screws. We also have them blocked and braced in place until after we get them in place.

    Did you make the bents or were they fabricated for you? What a fun project!

    We got two truck loads of 8×8’s 8×12’s and 8×16’s in various length’s. The crew did the crew did the rest.

    We were going to have them made off site and just set them. They guy went from saying he could do it all, to he would do the cuts to just wanting to sell us lumber. Thats when we went to our local yard to order the timbers.

    They are going in a 5000 sq ft house. They are beefy for the span and some for the looks. It is going to look like a ski lodge on the inside. I will post of a picture of the view from the second floor.
