Trusses!

Yesterday (Tuesday, Jan. 5, 2010) we set a total of 34 room trusses with a 7/12 pitch and one foot overhang. Here are the pictures. The first and last truss, finished product, and view of the room upstairs.

What would a pre-eng metal building have run compared to the wood structure? I would think metal would be stronger, more resistant to fire and probably faster to throw up?

Typically, if you are your own contractor you can do wood cheaper.
I have a friend who worked as a Professional Engineer for Morton Buildings for a number of years and it was his opinion that a wood framed structure would outlast most metal buildings. He stated that a typical metal stucture was designed for a 25 year lifespan. Good care will make that much longer as we all know.
As an inspector myself, I think Daniel has made some great choices with his building. His should last many years and retain a decent property value.
