I figured I should start posting, so here's what I am doing today

This is just one aspect of this job.
I need to reinforce the tails of one end of each truss. I also need to increase bearing, and add a vertical 2x4 leg to the truss. Along with plywood gusset. This isn't my design in any way. I even have a nailing spec.

I got a few more trusses done. But spent most of the day making sure everything is ready for tomorrow when we get the Structual steel delivered.

Finished some more trusses, improved on my truss jig by adding stops. Received my steel, and hoisted it up.

Tuesday we ripped off the roof where the trusses were too damaged to repair. Dropped in our new trusses, sheathed the roof. The roofers started immediately after

Three beam lines 81' in total 11 columns.
We removed the old beams, installed the new beams. Then jacked everything up. It came out great.

I had nothing to do with the footings on this job or the mounds of dirt. There going to be doing a 24" basement dig out.

Replaced 5 columns the other day cause all of the bottoms of the existing columns had rotted away
