No. No need. I'm wiring for a 30/100 supply, but will install 15/45 on the basis that a bigger meter will only involve a second visit from the PEA and the difference in cost between the 2

Sometimeswoodworker,
On your main trusses spanning 8m, what where your tube sizes? Also, I notice it's unusual that all the truss braces run the same way and not in the typical "W" pattern. Did the engineer spec these or did the company doing the truss build for you spec them? Love the yellow crane beam!

Hi James

In fact the truss braces do not all run the same way though in most pictures they seem to.

Truss design


As our builder for the roof steel is the same company as did the design they are built to their specifications.

On the colour, thanks, it seems to be a pretty universal colour for cranes so I thought I would stay with it.

I do hope you'll be placing a red flashing light and horn over the crane gantry for when it's moving with a load. :D I also hope that you'll comply and get a crane chaser's licence before operating the said crane gantry. :lol:
It's also good to see you complying with health and safety regs whilst up on scaffold. :lol:
I take it you'll be adding the diagonal black stripes later? :D

1) I am wiring for speakers in all rooms so I could add disco lights :lol:
2) I'm sure that a couple of pieces of red paper will get me one :lol:
3) note the safety head gear :lol:
4) the sugar cane will add the black bits all too soon. :(

your traditional "w" bracing is the way to brace a duo pitch roof truss and thats why you see it more often.
On here they are using mono pitch trusses and simple latice beams so the bracing is "z".
the vertical struts are carrying the load and the diagonal braces are keeping it square...if thats not an oxymoron. :)

if for example there were matching trusses running down the opposite side then the diagonals would run the opposite way and you would see the traditional "m" or "w" bracing.

Now for something completely different.

I spent about 5 minutes to make a demonstration Rocket Stove. Cost: free. Materials: some discarded AAC block off cuts and a few pieces of discarded 6mm rebar
