The PSL was too long, but I hammered it into place anyway. One of my few mistakes. What I didn't know at the time was that I bowed the purlin up by about 3/4 of an inch. I learned about it later when I placed the rafters and couldn't get them to come out straight. Now the roof has a slight crown to it.
Here is a good shot of a flattened purlin.
June 9, 1999. The rafters and OSB roof sheathing were delivered. The 40-footers are in the foreground, the OSB to the left of them, and the 24-foot rafters are at the top left.
Some 40-foot rafters are staged part way up the roadway. I stopped doing that after a while. (If you are interested in how I eventually installed these rafters, take a look at my ninety step procedure.)
The 24-footers are staged up by the west corner of the building. I know! I know! You're not supposed to stack them flat. I turned them all on edge after this picture was taken. Honest.
Here is a 40-foot rafter being pulled up off the ground reminiscent of a cobra coming up out of a basket.
