All 9 of the 40ft trusses for the shop are done and up on the cross beams. Next I will be adding another 20ft cross beam to each side and then sliding the trusses into their final position.
I can’t roll the scaffold any further to the left (end of concrete slab) so I had to attach the hauling rope off center. To keep the 350 pound beam level while lifting it into place I tied 140 pounds of weight to the right end. I need to do the same thing on the other side and then the trusses can be slid into place.
Beside truss work we pulled wires from the breaker panel to the well so now we don’t need the generator for any power needs. Somehow we managed to get a get a rock in the electrical conduit about half thru the 150ft of 3/4 conduit. Needed to dig up the conduit (3 feet deep), cut the pipe, remove the rock and glue the pipe back together.
I’ve also been doing some blacksmithing work for clients. It will be nice to have a full shop – soon!
