You and Dski could have taken care of Les Nessman in no time at all.

Dang thread has been going since 2009. That's a lot of nail driving.

Speaking of nails, walls are pretty much done. Shifting focus to prepping for truss install.

We are keeping the door and window thing as simple as possible. The immediate goal is to be dried in + metal roof. That's why we opted to pay the premium for the factory painted LP Smartside siding panels. As you note, Ewest....add a roof and it is usable. Dski and I know now from experience what we are capable of in production as a 2-horse construction crew. The garage-apt histrionics bear out our production progress potential; slow and methodical. We are willing to pay an up-charge on certain aspects of this project in order to maintain a leg up.
So....
In answer to your query, there will be one 36" metal service door and one 12' wide x 9' high overhead door. As you can plainly note by the pics, the windows are pre-framed. Once we can shrug off rain and snow, we will scrape the bottom of the piggy bank and start installing windows.

TRUSS TIME
We rented the telehandler (aka; shooting boom). Wow; what a cool toy...I want one! We asked one of my best pals and his wife to help us set (also helps that they are BIG time into fishing...wink!) It took 2 long days in the heat and humidity, but we got 'er dun.





We pre-paneled and finished most all the heavy lifting work on the gable end trusses. All the additional weight concerned me for the truss integrity during the lift, at the lift points. We added some 3/4" plywood gusset bolsters with a buncha screws. It worked. (big monkey off'a my shoulders)

In anticipation of a full-on body revolt, I have already exercised due diligence and explored the option of hiring a 3rd party for any and/or all of the roofing facets. These pro-active planning processes also take into consideration the possibility of a full-on wife revolt.

Yes; standing seam metal roof supported by 5/8" CDX plywood decking.

I should add that I got a visit from the field tech salesman that rep's the company from which I purchased the roof trusses. He came out to see how things are progressing. He stood there and complimented us on the quality of the work, then looks at Dski and says "so, what are you gonna put in here?" She pointed at me.

That is some outstanding and quick work !!

Doubt you will do well in there eating wood and concrete.

Do you have attic plans?

The gambrel trusses were designed for a 16' x 48' bonus room at the second level, but the live load is a little short of suitable for an actual living space. It IS ideal for storage. This was the plan. Once we have the structure under roof, we can start thinking about cutting a truss or two, framing proper support and a stairway. I am also thinking about foregoing the stairs and using a lift elevator.

Au contraire mon frčre! Dski has been a machine; a dynamo. I do the heavy lifting of sheets to the roof, but she is staging them and working off the ladders nearly as much as I am.

Thanks for the props, RStringer. Been a labor of love, sprinkled with insanity.
