My wife and I are building a small-ish pole barn (18'x29') completely by ourselves. It is the first building either of us has ever built, and it is turning out so much better than I thought it would. We are at the roofing stage, using metal corrugated panels, and we are down to the last few panels on the top section. It has a center aisle with a 12/12 pitch, and side sheds with a 4/12 pitch. But the way we did it, we had a solid loft floor under our feet for most of the steep pitched part. I have a fear of heights (though I have been getting better during this process), and I'm starting to get nervous. I know I'm going to end up out on the roof to finish the top sections.
So I bought a Werner fall protection system that includes a temporary anchor, a lanyard and rope, and a harness. I also picked up a Guardian cross arm anchor strap. I'm trying to figure out the best anchor to use and the best way to attach the anchor. From what I'm reading, I'm wondering if the temporary anchor is appropriate. For example, they talk about screwing the anchor directly into the sheathing. But we are doing a basic old fashioned pole barn with the metal put down directly on purlins.
Anyone else used one of these anchors and harnesses with corrugated metal roofing?
