They brought the big guns in today for the major part of the Block 14 (4 connected units) roof truss install. The much smaller hi-lift that fell over a couple of days ago was recovered, but wounded as you can see from these pics:
|This prong should be flat on the ground|
|A few new wrinkles|
|This is the woods it fell into|
Today was the major lift for the roof trusses. This had been planned before the smaller lift fell over, as you can see a higher lift is needed for this stage.
|Lots of side support for this crane|
|Picking trusses from one side of the road over to the other side|
It was a good day for it. Little wind, no new snow. They got started about 9am and the block was all done by about 3:30.
The one block left to do hasn't yet started, but it will likely be done this year. That will finish the 55 units in the development that started building some 11 years ago. The planning phases started almost 20 years ago, just a gleam in the eye of some forward thinkers.
