Installation of lattice purlins and beam supports

But wait…didn’t I already show you how to install arbor beams/purlins and also how to install the beam supports?

Yes, I sure did. Today’s video shows how I finished the lattice purlins and added the second set of truss supports. It’s not very new, but it’s fitting very well!

I specifically waited to add the second set of joist supports to make installing the joists easier. Leveling and securing joists at 2 points is much easier than at 4 points.

As you can see in the video, after attaching the purlins/beams to the joists, I installed the second set of joists like the first, with 4 lag screws in pre-drilled holes.

Easy – Below I’ll show you how I installed those beautiful curved wood brackets.
