    "Good lord. I'm in the wrong business."

    LOL, I was thinking the same thing! Low over head all that's needed is a car, a bucket, some soap, a few other low cost basics and you're in business.

    That type of roof is made with a ridge pole/beam and rafters. The span looks to be around 12’. Totally different beast when using 36’ wide pre-made trusses.

    Yes, but he was running at a higher level then. I think for different connections also. Canter folks looked at him at the races and said he looked in good shape and well looked after.
