  How do the rest of the post look?

 

There is one post about in the middle of the east outside wall that has about eight inches completely rotted away.

That part of the wall is not sagging though because it is supported by the top header boards and the upper loft in the same way that a bridge span is supported.

The rest of the post on the outside walls look a little rough but are not actually rotted very much.

I'm going to bolt a section of treated 2x6 on each side  each of the outside post and put a piece of 6x6 into the gap on that one outside post.

 

I think the post on the outside walls may have been bought from a different company then the inside support post.

The inside post are a much darker color then the outside post and the inside post are not rotted at all.

Yesterday I got a couple of shots of them connecting the top plate on the walls to the roof of the garage.

Today the ol forklift got to do some work.
They're putting the sheeting on the back wall and we used the forklift for a platform for them to work on.
Here is a shot from the cab of them starting to put the first sheet up on the corner.

The bottom portion of the second panel is being nailed on here.

Later on I got a shot of Don nailing the top of a panel on.

The crane is here to lift the trusses in place and Paul and Dave are making up a "T" bracket to use for lining up the trusses.

Using the forklift again so Don can nail a piece of wood up on the the corner.

Dave has attached the "T" bracket up on the back wall.
They will run a string line between these two pieces of wood for lining up the trusses.

The first truss is lifted off the stack.

Swung up over the walls.

And set in place on the end wall.

The next truss is lifted up.

Swung up over the walls.

And set in place.

Here is the last truss going up.

And set in place.

Then they started setting the smaller trusses on the "mud room" between the house and the garage.

Looking good. What is the roof pitch, appears to be 7-8. It shouldn't take long to dry it in now.

We actually have some neighbors up the road who a few years ago completely closed up all the windows in their house to even removing and putting siding over them and put what looks to be the silver insulation boards on all the doors. I know there are people who are light sensitive, but just seems weird to look at it.

Depending on the laws where your at that might even be illegal or at the very least I'd consider it a real hazard if there was ever a fire.

Vampires..?

 

I just dislike light shining in when I don't want it to.  When I worked steady midnight I kept tin foil on my windows.

There is a family in the 'hood whose children are allergic to sunlight. They have special order windows (amber coloured)to repel 100% UV lights. There was a article in paper a few years ago when they finally got windows..The same tint is also applied on their vehicle windows

Covering up windows with aluminum foil??? Keep a eye on that one!

 

I want to see the roof on this week!  Looks good.  You are having  really decent weather,  the crews can get lots done,,,

Where does the railroad track go?

 

Half  of the garage is going to be  walled off with a raised floor and that is going to be my workroom for building trains.

It will be a 8x25 area.

 

 

 

 What is the roof pitch, appears to be 7-8. It shouldn't take long to dry it in now.

 

This is a 6-12 pitch roof.

 

 

Uhm, not sure that platform is OSHA approved 

 

Bet those guys love you for it though :thumbs:

 

A house with no windows  

 

Osha's opinion doesn't matter on things you build and use for your self.

 

It has sure saved a lot of construction time.

 

Openings will be cut out and windows will be installed one at a time so the interior stays dry.
