This is the start of the first (& longest) house truss. It is just over 51ft long. Once completed it will be lifted up onto the support rails and then dragged to the far end of the house and welded in place. Since the house is “wedged” shaped each successive truss will be 8 inches shorter than the previous truss. The 5in square beam under the truss is there only to provide a long flat space to fabricate the truss.
Since the previous post we participated in a very successful Hidden In The Hills Studio Tour and installed lights and shelving in the shop.
