10/20/10 - 1976 Deficiencies...

So...my framers discovered that when my house was build some 34 years ago the builder neglected to strap the trusses. If you shook the walls supporting the gable ends of roof, it was very unstable...read...LOTS of movement! Knowing there should be little to no movement this is not a good thing! I knew you guys were my best choice for framing! Thanks guys!

Kyle is strapping the trusses, that is nailing on lumber 
across the trusses to add structural support

Hello Kyle...way up high!

Dustin gives a heave-ho to line up the wall

Is everything plumb? (that is, straight & level)
