this entry is for yesterday the day before Thanks Giving
I spent a few hours nailing up the truss and then cut out the gussets for them since this is a barn style roof it was hard to get the strength i wanted out of the truss . They are made from 2×4 and are cut at 22.5 degrees using 4 boards for each truss that’s three joints each with 16 nails driven in using the palm nailer then the gusets are attached using 12 penny ring shanked nails i had some trouble with the pasload gun and am awaiting a call back to see if it can be fixed without a trip to the shop It is my favorite framing nailer. I do have others but they all use air. I cant believe how many nails are in this project. I did go with the 2foot on center 2×4 construction instead of 16inch on center but it is only a storage shed and cost does mater on this project the tools in the shop are dying to be decluttered and put back into service. I was looking for a way to get this done before xmas i sure hope i do get it done.
