Hello everyone tonite

In my last post to continue, on the second level of the barn frame stood the purlin posts and their plates, that sat on their tops, tying everything together, with braces at each intersecting point.

I might point out these purlin plates were smallish in cross section, only measuring 7by8 inches, 48 feet in length. Handling them into position was tricky, because of their length, they could break very easily!

Got to leave now
