September 29, 2019 – Rinse and repeat day two. The roof framing in section three continues with the installation of the second span roof rafters.
First I remove the top rows of oak roof planking to gain access to the ridge board. Next I connect the new roof rafters to the existing ridge board with galvanized rafter hangers. The hangers are Simpson Strong-Tie adjustable 2×8 hangers.
The opposite end of the second span rafter sits on the mid span knee wall. It is nailed to both the knee wall and the first span rafter.
Eleven rafters complete this section. As always, the last thing that needs done is placing the blue tarps to keep everything nice and dry until next weekend.
Next weekend I will install the plywood roof decking and cover this section with 30 lb. roofing paper. After that, it is on to the last section, section four. Hip Hip Hooray!
