Long Spans And Days

January 14th, 2013

The progress on setting the roof system on the 100 Club Drive job site is nothing less than remarkable in my humble opinion. IG Construction crew members, shown here, have a right to be proud of their achievements up to this point. The main roof trusses along with the garage trusses are erected, as the “piggy-back” upper roofs are being swung into place atop the purlins prepared for them. To handle and brace these large span trusses is difficult and dangerous. Their experience was clearly evident as they moved nearly effortless on the top plates, each conducting their individual roles. The left side hip was being nailed as the sunset sunk into the ocean across the street, taking with it all ambient lighting for the work site. The form and the shape of the building is defined by the intricate roof pieces being assembled into place. Nestled between the great room, sitting and kitchen areas walls are columns designed to carry the timber trusses observable from below making this home unique in more ways than one.
