    Pole Shed

    Heading into my third winter with the 1026 I decided I had enough of tarping and un-tarping. I wanted something simple like a lean to off the end of my shop, not enclosed but just a shelter from the rain and snow. The project has experienced what we call "scope creep". But I thought that while I was at it I might as well take up some more space. I also have a hobby of rebuilding vintage travel trailers and need a tall shelter for that. So this is what is evolving out by my shop:

    This is the back side of the shop, the centre piece and the lean to on the right are what make up my woodworking shop. The lean to on the left is where I store my welder and "stuff", too much stuff. Mrs. Carvel insisted I follow the roof lines of the existing rather than make another lean to, which is good because the centre section is where I can work on trailers and lift the roof skin up to the rafters.

    So I picked up a load of 4x6 posts.

    Using my PHD with a 12" auger I punched the holes as deep as I could bury it, about 42".

    Braced up the posts for the concrete pour. Actually poured these in three sessions in the evenings.

    Posts all set. The tractor will sit on the left, the centre section is my trailer area, and the area on the right will get partially closed in to store "stuff".

    I used a laser level to shoot the elevations for cutting the posts. I got the first two beams in, I couldn't do it without that scaffold.

    So that's the beginnings of a lot of work, (Mrs. Carvel won't appreciate being in this shot. She is so excited for me but I think she knows this will give her leverage on the sunroom on the house that is next year's project.)

    I got the rafters up for the tractor bay, I have to say the Little Green Girl looks cozy in there. All the beams are in place and the rafters for the right side are cut and ready to go up. I sure am hoping the snow holds off for another month.

    Yes, but Mrs. Carvel helps me a little with measuring, lining up the plumb bob, finishing the concrete. For the beams and rafters I'm on my own though, it's basically a stick at a time up and down the scaffold. I don't even hurt this morning either, I'm surprised.

    Well it doesn't look like much progress, but I did get away for Thanksgiving for a few days so that's my excuse.

    I got the other side of the common rafters up, laid out the truss for the centre section and got one truss built and up. I also got all the gussets cut for the rest of the trusses.

    The hardest part of all this is trying to line up to the old barn that is so crooked. The building is leaning about 3 inches to the left and about 6 inches toward the front. All that considered, the truss lines up great. I think I have the rest of it figured out too, so I should be able to order sheet metal soon.

    Third load of lumber, this is for the purlins.

    After getting the layout figured out I got one truss built, there is just enough room to assemble these on this piece of floor.

    They aren't too heavy to lift by myself but I think for the rest I will tie off the scaffold to the beam, I just feel real top heavy as I hoisted this up.

    I have to get back to work tomorrow but hopefully I can get the trusses up this weekend, the weather is certainly in my favour in spite of the rain this afternoon.

    Not sure exactly how you got the truss up but maybe it would be easer to get up on the beams upside down and then flip it.

    Looking good BTW.
