Roof/Floor Trusses **PRICE REDUCED**

18 posts in this topic

I have (37) 22'-0" long, 18" deep open web wood floor/roof trusses. The trusses have a bearing point of 20'-0" allowing a 2'-0" cantilever on one end. These trusses were used within an office building that was taken apart but would be great for a shed, cabin, playhouse, etc. Some have nails in them yet but these can easily be pounded back out. Buyer must take entire lot. I contacted a truss company in the area and was told trusses of this nature are worth $70/truss ($2,590.00). Selling for $50/truss or $1,850.00. Almost $800.00 off of original price!! Buyer must have trailer as I cannot deliver. Any questions, please ask.

I've dropped the price to $45/truss for a total of $1665.00. This is almost 1/2 the price of new. Someone out there needs these and I need to clean the garage! Let's make a deal.

Anyone else have plans to build a shed or deer shack? These would be the ticket! The trusses even have the block-out for larger trunk lines of ductwork if needed.

Trusses are still here and need to go. Who's got a building project lined up for the spring or summer? These trusses would be the ticket if you can incorporate them into your plans!

Do you have the spec.sheets to verify,live load & dead load to pass inspection? If so I would take them.

Sparcebag,

I checked on the trusses and found several labels on them regarding TPI and tested by Western, etc., but I currently do not a cut sheet or spec sheet on the truss. If you'd like, I can try to track down the original builder of the building to see if they may have anything that would indicate that, but I can't promise anything. Let me know how you want me to proceed.

Sparcebag,

I have checked through the trusses only to find the typical manufacturer stamps on them and have also tried to make some calls to who may have built the building that these were in to see if they could come up with a shop drawing or a truss design calculation, but this was to no avail. If you're still interested, please let me know otherwise I will be bringing these to a local auction the end of april and they will be gone. Thanks!

Dont go through too much!you could call local building inspection Dept. see if they yet have them on file.I know I wont get by using them with a inspection and to have a engineer spec.them would be over cost!

Sparcebag,

I looked at the trusses again this weekend and was able to find a stamp on one of the trusses that said this:

Manion Lumber & Truss

Truss Fab #061

40 lb LL Design

Esco

Wondering if this is what you were referring to? If this helps clarify things, please let me know. Thanks.

      Fished Big Pine Sunday afternoon.  Drove out Saturday and checked ice conditions and they looked great so decided Sunday was go.  Got there and set up for crappies and instantly had a nice fish and it wrapped up in the transducer and I lost him.  That was my highlight.  We set the house up to block the wind since the girlfriend was with and trying to make it fun for her.  When we tore down wow did the lake look different!  We found a hole that we could shove the hole of the ice scoop down  24" and it didn't hit anything.  It wasn't there when we started fishing!  Water was murky as heck and lots of floaters in the water.  Fish were LATHARGIC! saw them on camera and they barely moved through the water swimming around.  Usually we have our camera 4-5 feet away from the jig with perfect clarity not the case this weekend 4' away and we never found our spoon!  Coming off the ice the access was getting chewed up but was still passable.  People need to slow down!  We got passed by a pickup doing 30-35 twice!  We were taking it around 10 mph and was causing waves in the water.  Wont be driving back out until there is a good freeze for a while!

      It's worth a try. I found all mine right next to my house like a foot or less I did find some that were 6-7 feet away. Good luck!

      I'm going to look too. Yard is wet and there should be a few around. Be a good time to try the shock method.

        Casey , Dave, Andrew and Josh rolled in Thursday and wasted no time getting unloaded and heading out to look for the elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappies. They would be hitting some areas that we have done well in the past and in turn may help me  get a starting point on my quest to find the mother load. I'm kinda old school and still go by land marks and depths more then gps spots. From there you have to look for other things as they never seem to stay in one spot as they are on a quest to fatten up for the spawn. Its all about survival for fish as its eat or be eaten and make more fish. Mother nature is a amazing thing. A couple things I have noticed over the years, when you catch little walleye 8 to 10 inches that has always been a good starting point. It may have something to do with the food chain I imagine. We also seem to tie in to big pike on crappie jigs? My brother from Chicago also arrived Thursday eve so I would be hosting him for a few days as he was in old Minnesota. It was great having him here. We were able to fish together Thursday eve and also sunday evening . I even caught a couple fish for a fish fry Saturday as my good friend Boar can attest to. Warren also got to land two nice pike both on the tried and true Genze worm. Not sure why they like that little snowman shaped lure but they sure do like them tipped with a minnow. He headed home yesterday with there 6 fish so that was nice. Jim and Jake rolled into florida  Friday . They also had some friends with a wheel house Eric, Jennifer and Rick so I had a spot all plowed for them. It started off very slow for them but Saturday night sunday morning did pick up and they managed to catch a few fish. Jennifer was on fire and even landed a goldeneye that Eric would be smoking. Lance had Monatna reserved for a couple friends and they also had two wheel houses with them. Grant, Mary, Donna and  Lee. They were old friends and customers of Spider Johnsons. Lance had a 21 foot ice castle that they had stained a dark chocolate color and I really liked how it turned out.  I also killed the exterior blue of lee's house, a midnight blue. I was so disappointed in the fishing in that spot and just do not understand how 20 fish can be caught 150 feet away and narly a bite where they were. Stupid fish.  Casey and his crew did find a couple elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappies and got stuck on that area and never explored any other spots that I know of. They also managed to get plenty of walleyes in that area so were able to have a fish fry both Friday and Saturday night. The dnr were out and about both Friday and Saturday night. They come in like gang busters? I guess it makes sense to catch people cheating with unattended lines, or fishing with to many lines. I know if I see something my customers are doing wrong I do speak up. I just assume they have there licenses and always try and explain the eating fish on the lake rules. Sunday was a day to say goodbye and hustle to get Montana and florida moved and reset for Shell chick, Jeff, Marty and Shell.  My good friend boar was helping me out this weekend so we had them fishing in no time even after a 3 mile move. The hammer would be joining here sister shell chick to fish sunday eve while I would be spending time in old minesota with me brother. The hammer was up to her old tricks and landed a elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie. Shell chick got in to the action and also landed one, plus they also landed a few keeper walleyes. Mean while Marty and Shell less then 150 feet away could not buy a fish? Stupid fish. Mother nature turned her ugly side again sunday eve into all day yesterday except this time it was warm and rain. It was enough to spook Shell chick and Jeff to head home a day early while my good friend and ex helper Marty would stick it out there and keep a eye on the conditions and the houses. I scrambled with Jimbo"s help to get old Minnesota, north Dakota and North Carolina moved as water was starting to go down the holes making them bigger. I also had Dave and his crew coming for north Dakota. I was amazed when I went onto the lake as 99 percent of the snow was gone, yes gone, all turned to water in less then 12 hours. I'll know a lot more today as I came off the lake at 3. I did talk to Marty a couple time and every thing seems ok .Dave has not called so they also must be ok. I'll try and give a lake up date later today. I expect a lot of water has drained under the ice after seeing that water draining down the holes like a toilet being flushed. One year I came out the next day and all the water was gone in 12 hours?
