Well this project has been sitting on the back burner. :(

been sawing up true 2x6's for the rafters. Yes green SYP and heavy, but got a start back on this project today. ;D Pre cut everything on the ground and hung everything in the air. :o Really hard doing this all by yourself, but I got this done today.

 

 

 

 

As far as the tresses, they were fine. No sagging. ;D

Reason as to why I installed the ceiling joist like I did was because I will be installing a Ibeam that will have a trolley system to run on. Also, it is way high enough that I can use and park my backhoe under it.

There will be extra bracing in the future. That is all planed out. All other trusses will be built on the ground and lifted up with my backhoe.

Also, my take using green SYP. I used it in the pass and found that as it dries and shrinks, everything gets even tighter. ;D Only real problem besides a little mold is that it's extra heavy. In fact these boards I sawed over a week ago had lost a bunch of water weight in that time.

Ummm, just so we don't take that and run the wrong way with it. A nail driven into green wood, that then dries, loses 30% of its' lateral shear strength and 75% of its withdrawal strength. Ring or spiral shanks or Ardox nails help especially in withdrawal.

I am using ring shank nails and construction glue on all joints.

Got out early this morning and was hopping to get the rafter trusses done today. Just super hot to start with. :o Got 5 out of the 8 that I need done and then the skies open up. :( Kind of sad, but it was at the point I would do one and then have to take a 15 minute break. :o I still have to install the center piece. Going to get that done maybe tomorrow along with the other three I need to build.

 

 

My little sister called and said she had something for me. It was her husbands that never open it. I never drank from a $700 bottle before and I think I sill will not. ;D Kind of rich for my taste. :D

Finish up framing the truss I needed in between the rain.  Got half move in place for the lift, but I will need help doing that. So it might not get done till the weekend. :(

 

 

A lot more rain in the forcast all week and I need to fire up the mill.

Really. With the sun out for a couple hours, then rain, repeat that 3-4 times a day and you get the mold. It's raining hard right now. :(

Once all up and the roof over it, I will bleach the heck out of it. ;D

Had the same weather here today Fish. Helped my BIL fix his truck and checked to see if the leak in my mama's house was fixed and then just decided to stay inside the rest of the day.

Yesterday was a rest day. Got out this morning and hung 3 of the 9 rafter truss. Kind of hard doing this by myself. Heard thunder and call it a morning. Besides, heat index is at 100F. :o

Got the last of the rafter trusses up. Took 3 Tee shirts to get it done. :o Nothing like working in mud and wet feet.

 

 

Another power outage. >:( DanG  storms every day has been knocking the power off like a third world country. >:(

 

 

Maybe tomorrow I will install the end rafter.
