Rafters Mostly Done

Peter and Ryan helped me put up rafters today. My time spent late last night getting everything ready was well spent, we were able to start attaching rafters right away.

I marked, cut and attached hangers to rafters on the ground.

Ryan and Peter attached them to the ridge beam from up on the scaffolding.

We also face nailed additional rafter boards to the inside of the gable walls, which helped stiffen them up a lot, and will provide a drywall nailer.

I was 2 hangers short and they were special-order parts, so I’ll have to fill those in when the hangers arrive. After we got all but those two up, we plumbed the middle ends of the side walls and attached the rafters to them by toenailing.
