They have arrived just in time as Barrie needs to be able to brick up to the top of the gables so will need to know the roof pitch.  No time to waste we best get started fitting the trusses immediately.

These puppies get heavier and heavier.  I’m sure each one is 10 Kgs heavier than the last!

Finally, they are all loaded on to the wall plates ready for spacing and bracing.

While Barrie is working tirelessly on the brick work I decide to finish the bracing and nogging.
