Ready for Trusses

It's all sheathed and ready for trusses........I think. There are some spots on the sheathing that still needs nailing. I could'nt reach. Wrong ladder power and a partial trench in my way. If it were not for that, I almost feel like putting on the house wrap before the trusses, it would be alot easier for the top part that way. But I'm not going to, I just want to try and get a roof on before some major rains come. I just might have some help coming out tomorrow to help me with those trusses. But I am not going to hold my breath, for I know that it is Saturday night, and ya never know what could happen. (Thinking back of the way I was at one time). With help or with no help, the roof has to go on there somehow. If I were to do it myself, I was thinking about utilizing the winch on my quad and a snatch block. It would be time consuming by myself, but I'm pretty sure it would be quite doable.
The trusses are going to add 10 more feet and a little to my overall height. I hope the wind don't blow my house over. lol. Actually, it usually dos'nt get all that windy in here. Usually.


  1. Looking good there! I hope it all works out with some help. I DO know what ya mean about not holding your breath though. Good intentions and all that....

  2. Thanks SciFiChick. My help arrived, and we all put in a big day.
