Now that fire season has arrived the Town of Cave Creek requires weekly “hot work” inspections before I can weld or grind outside on the house, They make sure my sprinkler system is on and the brush is wet before I do any welding or grinding,
One of the advantages of actually building your own home is there are no hassles when making changes to the plans. We are extending the bedroom wall out 8ft to make the bedroom 16ft wide, We are canterlevering the floor out over the little revine next to the house so no new foundation work is needed.
Wow! It has been 9 months since our last post. In February I had part of my right kidney removed (stupid cancer – all is well). I was unable to work for a couple months. Then I kept thinking I should post an update. Next thing I know it is October. Updates will be more frequent.
The base measurement for truss #14 was 193in. I managed to enter 198 into the spreadsheet that calcs the various lengths of steel needed for the truss. Didn’t realize this til the truss was up on the house. Solution. Remove the “triangle” section from each end and cut out 2.5 inches then weld the triangle back on. It was easier to do the work on top of the house rather than lower the truss back to the ground.
