    I see that. Im just saying to be careful how much weight you hang from the ceiling. Trusses are not engineered to carry that kind of vertical load. You don't want to start pulling the joints apart at the mending plates that are on the joints. That would be bad news. They are engineered to carry weight pushing down from the top, not pulling from the bottom.

    Understand, thats why we spread the load so much over so many of them, im sure there isnt much weight on any one truss. while my house is 105 years old. the garage, is not....I need to get that thing insulated!

    And get the framing around the windows done properly. There are no jack studs supporting the headers over the windows.

    I will explain it when I talk to you. Basically there is no stud under the end of the header over the window that carried the load to the foundation. The headers are nailed in from the end of the stud the connect to. There needs to be another stud under the end of the header that runs to the bottom of the wall. I see it on one side of the window, but not the other side. Sorry. I notice that kind of stuff........

    I personally think this would work well to pull that trailer up( with a pully)

Or lower down. Much easier then ratchet straps and chain pullers. So has anyone else done this?

    super clever. I had a similar problem once and just cut the tongue off the trailer and put it on a heavy duty stainless hinge. It would just hinge into place and hold with a pin while in use. When in garage I could unpin and swing it out of the way, making room for the vehicle and trailer end to end. Skis on trailer of course..
