The first evidence that I'll have a boat barn soon.
I have to work in the rain
its a great feeling when they show up. Just got ours finished here, We love it.
Wow, is it really that boring up there!
Yes, wet and cold need a boat barn.
Finally a permit. Holes tomorrow.
A few more pieces of the puzzle were delivered.
The lift is cool, the wheels rotate 90° for narrow lanes.
Is your project a kit? If so, who is the manufacturer? Thanks and good luck!
I'm having a local contractor build it. He sourced the supplies locally.
In Oregon pole buildings are very common and “kits” for about any size are put together by the local lumber yards including trusses.
Ready for a crane to lift trusses Monday, weather dependant.
Well that’s a first for me! Built many and seen many built what do they need a crane for? The reason they deliver the trusses early is the pole building builders simply assemble the trusses together and slide right up the posts before all the wall Perlins. Some use fork lift, some use a center lift, or other methods, but not typically a crane... and the trusses are under the wall frame.... doesn’t look well thought out, but maybe this is a new way....
Damm I wish I had the room for one of those....
GSpot, he is highly rated and I know next to nothing about building. Obviously they need to turn sideways on the 3 inner double trusses. I'll be warm with an Irish coffee but I'll take some photos & videos of the process.
The 3 inner trusses are doubled.
I realize they are doubled... that’s what makes it even harder when the wall frame is up and they have to turn them sideways the get them under the wall frame.... typical construction is to set posts, assemble truss doubles straddling the posts and then raise them straight up the posts by various means and then secure them into place....
Maybe it’s a new process I am unaware of... you are mechanical enough to look at the situation and scratch your head a bit... the trusses are 4’ wider than the wall frame, they have to twist them out of there raise them up and then place them back down fitting the posts back in... looks like a pain in the ass to me...... having built a few, definitely not the way I would do or have seen done.... highly rated? Angie’s list... lol.... hmm.. haven’t seen to many ratings for pole building builders..... I’m suspect...
In Warren we talk to people. Web reviews? lol.
I have trusses, went well.
