Dormers For The Old Girl Part 3

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.
 Side walls which were built in workshop are hauled over on our lawn garden cart and pulled 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 of shingles.  Also the side walls are complete.

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