Dormers For The Old Girl Part 3

Well here goes another post.
If you missed Dormers For The Old Girl Part 2, click here.
Things are moving along. We are so lucky the weather is in our favor. Why are old homes never square...lol.
  Enough of my blah blah blah. Pictures are what you want.
 Side walls built in workshop and hauled over on our lawn garden cart.  Hauled up the roof by a rope.
Another view.
 Our home built trusses go on.  We used a 30 tonne press for the job.  Worked out great but very time consuming.  Took us one-----whole-----long-----day to build.

  All the full sized trusses are installed.  If you look to the peak of the house, the rest of this half of the roof has been stripped.  Also the side walls are complete.

End of part 3.  Stay tuned for part 4....coming soon.

P.S.
I WAS WONDERING FOR SOME HELPFUL COMMENTS ON WHAT COLOR OF SIDING WE SHOULD CHOOSE.  WE ARE LEANING TOWARDS CEMENT SIDING LIKE JAMES HARDIE BRAND OR SIMILAR.  IF YOU LOOK TO THE LEFT OF THE PICTURE YOU WILL SEE OUR ADDITION WHICH IS SIDED WITH YELLOW  AND OUR BLUE / BLACK ROOF WITH WHITE TRIM.     THE YELLOW YOU SEE WILL BE REUSED ON OUR OUTBUILDINGS.   ANY SUGGESTIONS WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.
