Gable Wall Continued

I've got the rest of the first half of the gable wall up. I think this has been the most challenging single task I've done so far. I had to build the second part of the wall in place, and it was difficult because of the height and weight of it.

This part of the wall has five 2x6's nailed together to form a solid column that will support the main girder for the roof. The column is 14' tall, and the tallest part of the wall is 18' tall. It was also quite a challenge to get the angles right so that the top plate matched up with the top plate of the short part of the wall. However, it all seemed to come together in the end.
