Not sure if they went to lunch or are short on trusses...
We really didn't have a lot of wiring run above it. It was mainly a couple of lights and that was about it.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!
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!We really didn't have a lot of wiring run above it.

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.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!
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!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.
Yep the contractor will be putting the flooring up there for us.Be sure to put some plywood sheets up in the attic to walk on later. Much easier to do it now.

I am looking at this.What will the access be?
Ours can spin, but rarely does more than a few inches at a very slow rate. Has not been problem for us.IThe problem with the one I originally linked to with the 4 chains coming together is it an spin around on you when it is going up. This design would be steady.
That makes sense. For us we have decoration stuff that gets used on holidays that I can see going up there. Nothing really heavy but just a pain to store in other areas. Right now most of that stuff is in the attic above the small garage but that is getting gutted. That will be another project.I vowed that after we built the new house and moved in, that NOTHING would ever be stored in attics. If it didn't have a place in the living area or basement, then we didn't need it. 10 years later, nothing in attics. When we cleaned out the attic in the old house, 95% went straight to dump.
