The trusses are up

Filed under: Uncategorized — aroundthebend @ 8:23 pm


Ed Sharkey and his colleagues Gaetan and Kevin put up most of the trusses this afternoon. The trusses had been partly assembled on the ground, so despite constant and sometimes heavy rain, the process went fairly quickly, with the help of a crane.


  1. H & M: Its so good to see this blog and watch the exciting progress! What a great way to share the experience. I heard about Dennis: that is a shock. I’m praying for a speedy recovery for him, and wishing you folks the best as you beaver along on the house … (Love that floor, by the way).
