One VERY Happy Matt Tackett along with Keenan Connor and myself, (behind the camera,) getting ready to erect the first of twelve wall trusses for the new building over four years after the fire that gutted their home and business in April of 2007.

Image
Keenan using his climbing skills to attach the windbay cables to the wall truss while Matt holds everything in place.

Not too shabby for the first day of construction.

Any day I get to see Tackett with his shirt off is a good day.

Is it going to be all metal? That is one way to stop it from burning down...

Good luck and it's looking good!

Yeah all steel. These buildings are real nice. I wired tons of them during the years I did commercial electrical work. They are used for everything from factories to stores to medical centers. If anyone needs one put up, let me know. They should only get easier from here.
