The first of thirteen sloping Howe trusses that will grace our roof:
Matt pulls nails out of the many 2x4's we have that are too short for most other things.
A piece of graffiti-covered plywood once covering one of our broken windows is cut down to make gusset plates.
Gusset plates are what resist moment forces in the joints of a truss. Our wooden plates are attached with an adhesive and nailed.
Finished truss. Twelve to go.
