WoodshopBolting and Bracing the Trusses

Bolting and Bracing the Trusses [Self-Build Post Frame Woodshop Build]

Must read

In this video I finish bolting the trusses in place and install all of the temporary bracing. If you are building a post frame building by yourself, there are some tips on how to do things without a travel lift. It is very tiring going up and down a ladder all day, but if you want to save a ton of cash, it’s part of the price you will have to pay.

The hardest step in my estimation will be putting the purlins on, and the only thing hard about it will be constantly going up and down a ladder — otherwise purlins would be kind of easy — if it weren’t for the pesky lay-out and drilling of the purlins themselves!

  1. The bolting of the trusses is continued from yesterday, and is relatively easy. It's now all done except for the permanent Spax on the back and all of the permanent fasteners on the front — the front needs a header, stiffeners, and other stuff before permanent bolting is done. The bracing is a different story! The bottom bracing was not bad as it could be done from a 10' step ladder. The upper braces were a different story as it had to be done from an extension ladder, and it was quite wobbly up there!

    All of the bracing will eventually come out. The upper bracing will be replaced by purlins, and the lower bracing will be replaced by permanent bracing on joist hangers that is run between the trusses. Seems like a lot to go through for temporary bracing, but unless you can get the permanent stuff in quickly, you run the risk of damage of collapse if a wind storm should pop-up! 😮

  2. This build is really valuable to me. I am starting my shop build now and really appreciate all the documentation of how you are doing things and the little tips and tricks. Too many channels just run a timelapse and never actually explain anything… Keep it up and that view count is going to take off soon!

  3. Sweet! Loved the up on top clips. You must have a head strap thing for camera? Turned out really well. I need something like that for video when I'm tamping. My gopro crashes now and then too, it just shuts itself off… go figure, Turkey is back 🥰
