    Tearing Trusses off on a building powered up is a project to disconnect the wiring running on top of them! I had to do that to my 24 x 48 single floor older shop to add the second floor and add another 24 x 48 to the building making it a 2 story 48 x 48 shop. I like seeing good projects going up thanks!

    Did they leave off the remodel part on the truss order? That would be a bummer takes a while to get more to finish the job with. My trusses were 52 ft long and tall so they were big to be delivered!! Crane loaded the whole package with all the weight in a couple spots. Walls are stronger then most think!Click image for larger version.

    We really didn't have a lot of wiring run above it. It was mainly a couple of lights and that was about it.

    I am pretty sure they ran out.

    I counted 21 trusses on the shot of them on the ground.

    I count 18 that are visible in the camera angle.

    Of the 21, two of them are the end trusses so that means 19 storage trusses. Based on the camera angle there is possibly one storage truss that I can't see. My guess is they put up 20 trusses today and the one south end truss is still on the ground because they have no way to secure it.

    On my trusses they had to leave the bottom truss 2x6 the 1st floor sheet rock was screwed to and cut the top of the truss off and put down a 2nd floor joist in. My whole service for that building was pretty much on top of those trusses. Hard part was putting the old wiring back thru the new above floor joist so they could plywood over them and start the 2nd floor. I kept up just worked it hot so I knew it all worked as I went. Same way I cut the Over Head Service wires on a Service Change many times. Once disconnecting a service up on a roof the bare neutral some how got hit with the hot wire on the cut! Boy you should have seen the people next door get out of there pool as I was trying to shake them apart since they were not tied off yet I had to move them. After that time I always taped the ends off and tied off the wire in case I had to let go! All when well it was just like a Arc Welder welding except loud and lots of black smoke went up in the air!

    Yep, that is what happened. I kind of figured that. The amount missing trusses is about the same size as that porch that is getting re-roofed. The good news is that the general called the building supply shop and they have an emergency service for this when there are missed orders. They will have the additional trusses on site by Tuesday. That isn't too bad.

    Took a few pics of the trusses. We went with a storage truss so we have some usable attic space. I was shocked how we will be comfortable in standing upright in there.

    Be sure to put some plywood sheets up in the attic to walk on later. Much easier to do it now. Don't forget to put light and power up there to. My attic was blown in but I put walk ways up above it first the insulation guys liked it too!
