Not a silly question at all. There is no room for the crane at the other end. So we are starting there and working toward the middle. The last few trusses will be put up individually.

We expect, as well as things have gone and the great help we have had, to be able to build and set a group of trusses a day now.

So, besides Fred, who were your helpers, Mike?

While Brian might be 'new' in perspective of the timeline of the other WW&F members  mentioned in Mike's post, if I am not mistaken he is referring to Brian Strait, who I believe first volunteered at Sheepscot at Spring WWF 2019, [somehow seems like a lifetime ago, pre-covid] :) so perhaps not all that 'new volunteer'. I recognize Brian's name, as IIRC we both joined the WW&F at about the  same time.  ;D

Nope, different Brian. Brian Strait is almost an old timer by now.

I had forgotten Brians last name. Now that I have processed his membership I can say it is Whitney.

Because someone has to say it....

We need a way to keep our Brians straight.

8:58, first side done. Brian and I were screwing while Zack, Dwight and Fred lugged lumber.



09:51. Next side was finished, just in time for a presidential inspection..



Before 10:30, we had moved the crane into position and set the group.



Slowly bringing it together.



Zack on the left, Fred center and Dwight on the right waiting..





25 feet up..



End of the day. Braced and secured.

I so wish I could be there to help.  The Pavilion is going to be gorgeous when it's all done with the siding.  Are we going to paint the wood or just apply wood preservative?

No plans on paint yet. I would not mind letting it age naturally, with no paint. Go to grey and blend in (minus the white trim and brown roof) and look like it has been there a while..
