We finished putting up the trusses for the garage today -- 6 trusses, a new record for a day. The bloody things run about an hour a piece with lift prep and securing. The end ones two hours. Not bad, I suppose, being that they are 34' long, weigh 300 lbs, and while they can support enormous load in one direction, in the other they barely support their own weight. The garage is an 'L,' the short side is holds the lift bay, and is 12' high. The main section has room for six vehicles plus a workshop. A picture prior to all the trusses being raised is attached.

I can't see clear enough -- is that a vertical or a horizontal mill? Didn't look high enough to be a vertical, right off ~ H
