Here are some excellent photos from when we put up the ridge beam. All photos courtesy of Kim!
Kim's son, Cody came to help
We bought at 26′ LVL beam and cut it down to size
Here's the notch where it sits on the top of the wall framing
holding it in place while Jason secures the other end.

Rafters waiting to be cut
Never hurts to add some construction adhesive
