Unexpected delay for steel delivery arose; August is not the time to be expecting quick receipt of material. The delay was compounded by the fact that the original steel supplier could not provide the 16” wide roof rafters. The largest they manufactured was 14”. Sizing down was not an option due to the depth needed for the required healthy insulation. When originally sourcing the steel, we had two suppliers’ material tested and approved for use. Fortunately, the alternative supplier did produce 16” wide rafters. Steel arrived and workman were scheduled to begin the install. Due to the month’s delay in securing delivery of rafters, the crew took on other jobs, and we worked on Patient Chickadee on intermittent days until their other jobs were finished.
