Day 129-130: Setting the Trusses

The day finally arrived when we were able to start on our roof.  We hired a boom truck and the sub-contractor who has been helping us throughout this project.  To save money the boom truck placed all of the trusses on top of the house and then left.  We were able to do this since W had built the inside walls first.  (That happened during the truss saga, and I neglected to post pictures.)

After that it was a slow process of getting them set precisely.

The living room and kitchen have a vaulted ceiling that goes up from 8 feet to 10 feet.

Everything was braced well after as we were expecting near tropical storm force winds.

The weather for the following day was going to be very windy and very cold so no work was done until the storm system went through.
