The truss's and materials were delivered on the 29th as promised. Crane was here Saturday morning for about 3 1/2 hours and set the truss's.

It worked out real well just lowering the trusses into the hurricane clips as that made for no layout...Not really a time consuming job but there was a lot of climbing around to frame the temporary shoring for the truss's... runaway
I was able to stock 32 sheets of OSB on the roof...That sure beats sliding them up a ladder... up

I did manage to get about 3/4 of the bracing completed and installed the ledger board at the front yesterday. Chalked a line from end to end and began the roof sheeting...
Just might take tonight off after a brutal day of working in the heat all day... rant

I like that I have 10' high walls and ceilings. Using the cathedral truss's I get 13' to the peak and with the extended overhang in front it doesn't look like a big commercial garage in a residential area... up

Are you going to secure a small area for a couch and a TV/man-cave area?

So I took some time off of working on this to go to Carlisle...
On the front side I began installing the roof sheathing and finished up the ladder framing at the end truss's.
When I started the sheathing with a 23 7/8" piece that allowed me to have a 2 1/2" gap at the top for the roof vent.
Doing the layout ahead of time meant that the top sheet could just be installed and not have to be cut. By cutting the first sheet in half I ended up with nearly no waste. up
Front side sheathing finished... 1/2 way there...

I wasn't happy with the 1' overhang at the back side and added an extra 1' at the ends of the truss's to make a 2' overhang.
All of the climbing around bracing in the rafters made assembling the eaves at both ends difficult but persistence does pay off.
I installed the 2x6 at the fascia and then began installing the roof sheathing on the back side. No big deal right...It's only about 19' down from the bottom edge to the ground... nervous

I dropped the extra coin for the "Titanium" roofing paper rather than using felt. This stuff claims it can sit for 180 days before the roofing is installed...I hope mines done in a week...

While everything above was going on I also needed to get the garage doors openings ready.
I used the white PVC trim around the openings...installed the added 2x6 framing the garage door company requested and added the blocking to the ceiling rafters for the track installation. up

I decided to wrap the interior 2x6's with aluminum rather than have to paint around the garage door tracks later. It makes for a nice clean install.
The gap between the PVC trim and the aluminum will be covered with the garage door seal trim. biggrin

A couple things I noticed when framing this...
A) It's wood...it's seldom straight and not always the same dimension and thickness as the one beside it in the stack. fan
B) Use string lines from known points and leave those lines up that they can be checked periodically as your building. twocents
C) Don't let someone talk you into loading the roof with the roof sheathing prior to having the fascia boards on. In the end it's easier to haul it up a ladder than deal with the point loads on the truss's. catfight
D) It's not any harder to overbuild things rather than cut corners although it does cost a little more.
E) NEVER trust that anything is straight without checking and confirming it. rant Lines and lasers are your friends...

Enclosed is a few pics of ways I found to correct some issues I ran into as I was building this.

I do need to give a shout out to my Dad and brother for the help and knowledge that has been shared. up

For now I'm dried in... boogie
Well... the roof anyway... frowwn

The metal roof installation occurred Saturday. I found two scratched panels in the delivery so new ones will be delivered this week.
Color is as close as I could get to what I wanted... up
This is the back side less the last panel and the end-cap.

The installers developed a layout on the panels and pre-drilled for the screws on 6 panels at one time. up
Then save the top panel and use that layout for the next six panels.
It makes it easier for their install plus makes all the screws line up perfectly when completed. bow
It's metal so this stuff is never perfect but I think it looks great...and now I'm about 90% dried in... boogie

Total installation time was only about 5 hours for the metal roofing... shock
That let me work on installing the tyvek on the back side and I managed to get the one window on the South elevation installed.
All in all a very productive day... up
