Raising the Roof

The roof framing

Raising a 500 lbs ridge beam 20ft into the air by hand is not an easy task. It takes strength and communication.

Here's a five minute video of the crew of eight, raising and placing the ridge beam at the apex of the structure.

The roof itself rests on joists, which span from the balloon framed sidewall members, to the ridge beam.

Here are some pictures of the day's events

The skeletal shell of the ADU is almost complete. The next several days will consist of sheathing the roof, framing the interior walls, installing windows, and wrapping the structure in a weather resistant barrier.
