Framers finished leveling the sill plate and then mid morning began setting the trusses. Unfortunately, there was an issue. The top half-form rotated a bit when the concrete was poured as I think I mentioned before. It was enough that they mostly didn't fit. The crew has had to chisel back the extended concrete wherever a truss sits. With that they are able to get them in, but it is slow going. They only got a third of them in whereas they could probably have gotten all set if things were better. I discussed with Concrete John and we agreed to brace the joint at the half-for with plywood. I also mentioned I want to check the outside to outside dimensions of the block before we pour.
All in all, it is looking great! Just slower than everyone expected. I've offered to help them tomorrow as well as help them install the subfloor later this week. The offer was appreciated.
