All trussed up!
So excited about todays work that the pun just had to happen, and some bigger photos. Very relieved to have the two big trusses now secured in place with temporary diagonal bracing until the purlins and plywood are installed to give the required structural integrity. The hand-cranked forklift proved up to the job and everything appears to be the right size. South gable wall panels to fit tomorrow, before the lift goes back to the hire company - boo!
