Raising the Roof

Nathan and the crew have been working last week and this week to put the roof on the new guesthouse.  It took them over a week of cutting, welding, and painting at the workshop to build the fifteen trusses.  Then they had to figure out how to put them up without the use of "normal" construction equipment like an all-terrain forklift or crane.  Thanks to scaffolding, ladders, poles, and muscles (although they are now sore ones!) they were able to get all of the trusses and purlins in place and are about to install the metal sheets.  We have been so thankful for no injuries during the process, despite a couple close-calls!
