There is so much to blog about, but I will have to wait to do that, and I will when I finish this house. I have to give back to this board in order to help someone out.

Crane showed up right on time - 8 am. Took a bit to set up and get the first curved beam ready to lift. And then the show began. The operator was one of the best we've seen. Need this 30-foot-long 30" tall curved thing moved a quarter-inch while its 40 feet above you? He could do it. Within four hours, the framers were done setting all five. That seriously beats my estimate of an hour apiece. I was extremely happy that everything lined up. Was a bit worried that the brackets 30 feet apart might be out of alignment, but it turns out I set the anchor bolts properly some months back.

After lunch we tackled the large front timber truss, having to assemble the legs and curved braces to it. It's up, they have it braced and tomorrow they'll set horizontal extensions to an upper chord, which serves as the lower mounts for a roof section. From there, they'll begin stick framing the roof over it. I'll finish framing the garage doors and start setting up the sections on the first door.
