As far as guns running it didnít take much in relation to the bodies that were there. Each of my crews were outfitted with a complete set of tools for normal business so they brought all of their gear. Maybe 70-80 nail guns strung out but half of that in use at one time. 6-8 saws per building side as well as 2 compound slide saws per side. Once the framing portion is wrapping up the air tools get rolls up then the roofers tap right into our air and haul butt. Ever seen 20 roofers doing shingles on a single house? Thatís a sight. Extremely faceted roof so guys can spread out and not get in each otherís way. Few guys doing ice and water shield, few doing valley pan, another few doing cap and it goes together very very quickly.
We ran dehueís as well but couldnít have them inside the house. No room with all of the work going on. So the HVAC contractor was in the street fabricating boots for the windows at 0200, Very clever. Supply through one side and exhaust on the other. Then when we started siding and stone veneer at 0400 it was 8 degrees outside with freezing fog. So we scaffolded the home and wrapped the scaffold in fast wrap. Pumped heat right into the envelope. 8 degrees outside and we were siding in T-shirts. Awesome.
