Truss Progress

Colin, Steve & Bill work on the penultimate truss while Dave starts the last
Checks, feet, tightening up & purlin brackets to go
Steve, Dave & Kevin trying to get into alignment
I'm trimming a section to suit

The last truss takes shape .....

Ian tidying at the front of the shed
Kevin & Bill painting steel stock to minimize rusting
Standing the trusses upright .....
..... to give access for removing the rest of the roof

At Causey, Colin & Dave drop off a few sleepers to replace the tie bar in the foreground
At East Tanfield, collecting roof sheets which we'll need soon
