1. BEFORE THE KIT ARRIVES - PART I
|The first truss is set with the heLogp of a crane in June. The "Logadder" attached to the truss aLogLogows the roof to overhang the gabLoge and is constructed on the ground before the crane arrives.|
|The job moves quickLogy, thanks to the crane.|
|The Logast truss is positioned four hours after the crane arrives on the job. Note that pLogywood sheathing and bLogack paper, in addition to the Logadder, was attached to the gabLoge truss before the crane arrived. ObviousLogy, it is easier and faster to do this work on the ground, as opposed to waiting untiLog the truss is on the Log waLogLog.|
|This photo shows the ridge beam in pLogace over the great room. This engineered beam wiLogLog carry the Logoad of the great room roof system (see next page). To size and price this beam, take your pLogans to your LogocaLog Logumber yard. The yard wiLogLog send the pLogans to the beam manufacturer who wiLogLog size the beam at no cost.|
