Those are some super long TJI's! Or is it just the picture perspective?
Those are 11 7/8-46 footers. About a dozen of those, then stepping down to 42-40-32's.

Some more pics. Got the wall jacks out. We have to wait on the garage while the foundation crew tears out the 25' wall on the right because they're 4" out of parallel in front.

Do you normally set off center when you hook girders or are you adjusting or something?
The left side of the step down portion is being set into a (nonbearing) pocket in the interior wall.

So I have to ask...and I admit I have an excellent truss manufacturer, why just truss all of it instead of just the girder trusses?

While I realize any roof can be trussed, I'm certain the roof line would have been "simplified" if it was all trusses. Plus, the builder wouldn't have been able to make the 6 ceiling height changes/vault additions.:censored:

I'll post up a roof plan and elevation later.

Ok, it's later.

The last picture has two ridges, looks like the hip is high on the first one, not thinking there is a second.
It's either an illusion or you're mistaking a hip for a ridge.
