Building custom waterfront homes in the summer has its challenges (rain!) and one of the best ways to overcome those challenges is to get under roof as quickly as possible. The other challenge is keeping material fresh and safe from environmental factors such as rain and sun as much as possible.
How Its Done
With these goals in mind trusses are delivered to the job site the day before we need them. A crane arrives the next day and the trusses are “flown” to the second floor where they are being installed. Our masonry team uses embed straps to attach the trusses to the structure. These straps are installed by the masonry contractor according to a truss layout and later attached to the trusses. If done properly this is not only an exercise in making the homes much stronger but also in saving our homeowners money since the straps do not have to be installed by carpenters. It also makes the installation of trusses go much quicker.
