Here you go dakzaag. Took three of us about 6 hours to set up.
Well here it is, 3 hours on the cap and 1 1/2 hours on the brick.
The wash on the cap was very shallow and there was a small separation between the flues and cement cap. The original maason wrapped the flues with tar paper and duct tape at the cap hieght.
No wood stove. Boiler and 2 side opening fireplace.
Subbing it out was on my mind the whole time we were setting up, but i have always found rigging a roof kind of interesting. We almost always do it ourselves. I know, kind of weird.
We usually bring the Lull for jobs like this, but the septic system was on this side of the house. Doing it the old fashioned way.
I think the trusses are made by Bil-Jax, but i will have to double check.
I buy them, or they can be rented, from my local scaffolding supplier.
They definately make these setups a little simpler and easier.
Let me take a stab at your questions CJ, I think the bridging is sitting on some foam or maybe carpet remnants. One of the first pictures shows some rolls of stuff laying by the house after the set-up.
As far as the back side of the chimney, you can always walk up the roof if there isn't room around the chimney. With scaffold behind you and those braces to grab, you can scale a pretty steep pitch without risking life or limb.
I like to use carpet pieces for chimney jobs, they stick and protect the roof well and are cheap and easy to pick up. I am always on the lookout for carpet scraps, 4' X 6' is about ideal size.
The putlogs are st into swivel base plates. The base plates are lag bolted to a lvl scaffold plank, which is lag bolted to to the roof joists.
I will take a pic tomorrow when we strip and you will all know what i am saying.
