Rafters Installed

So got all the rafters installed the last couple of days. The toughest part of the job is up and down the ladder all day to measure and toe nail everything down. Its tough to get 14' straight lumber nowadays, most has a bit of a curve in it, a tip is to position all the curves on the top of the rafters, when the weight of the deck and shingles goes on it will tend to straighten somewhat. Here are some pictures.

So except for a little work around my generator exhaust pipe it is ready to install the decking. Probably start Thursday my legs need a break.
