Day 74: Installing the Header Board

Immediately after the concrete was poured W sunk some bolts in the wet concrete.  The walls were "tied" to the concrete foundation with the rebar that stuck up into them.  These bolts allow the roof to be attached to the walls.

To these bolts he attached the header boards.  This required marking where the bolts were by laying a board on top and tapping it with a hammer.  Holes were then drilled where the indents were made.  The board was this placed on the top and attached with washers and nuts.


  1. Yea! Progress...I'm so happy you were able to get something done if not the actual truss/roofing as you'd hoped. I am loving watching this process.
