I would cut those trusses at night in the dark so nobody could see me do it.

I can believe the Square and plumb walls, but with out shimming the sole plate, no level floors/ceilings small Towner.

You think an extra 500.00$ spent on hiring some trained concrete masons and paying them to use a few more strong backs and form braces to keep the walls in position during pumping, would pay several X the $ on faster framing and quicker & better finish work and drywall.....No triangles between sheets of drywall...

OPer ? were the "long" trusses damaged?

No they were not infact due to the weird street and small lot they were hand unloaded from the truck too, only about 20 or so of them

The hand unloading? Took 5 minutes. The setting of them went fine we split the difference in length equally on either end and ran a string for the rim board tapping it in or out to make it straight. The second story walls are up and the roof is about to start.
