Setting the Ridge Beam

After placing the beams that are supported by the outriggers it was time to throw up the ridge beam. In order to set the 32 foot, 2×10 ridge beam we constructed supporting members out of drops and other scrap materials. With the help of many ladders and rolling scaffolding wee were able to hoist the ridge beam up overhead and rest it on the blocking attached to the supporting members. Once the ridge beam is up its time for rafters!
