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

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

Lean Remodeling / My cross over box
« on: November 17, 2016, 04:02:12 PM »
A few years ago I contacted Paul, about making some dividers for my cross over box. I was really pumped about the idea. I would haul around a ton of tools. I wanted to have all of my "core tools" with me, and I wanted them organized. Paul didn't bite on the idea, but that didn't discourage me. I spent a ton of time building boxs to house everything. I had a couple heavy gauge extension cords, worm drive saw, sawzaw, cordless drill, my veto pro pac, and a Paslode. I got a ton of comments from other contractors and friends. But the issue I found was that I rarely needed all of them. The tools I did need to complete the days task were either in tha cab with me or sliding around in the bed of my truck. Here's a pic of my cross over box now. Now I load it up with whatever I need, and only what I need to complete the days tasks.

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.

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.
