Structural Bracing Started
August 19, 2020
Over the last few days I’ve gotten the first strap on the rafters providing structural bracing in lieu of the sheathing that would traditionally be attached there.
I cut a 25 ft length of strapping and placed it over the rafters. I attached it on the top plate side. Then i attached a board to the other end to use as a lever to tension the strap.
By pulling the lever I was able to get the strap tight enough and then nailed it into place, attaching it to each rafter.
I also finally tidied up the last bit of insulation in the roof.
