Kick in the Balls

No, not literally.  I was putting up the trusses for the barn expansion.  All was going good with the 2x8s.  Time to put the 2x4s up on the roof to prepare for metal.  That’s when I remembered they didn’t have 2x4x20s.  They only had 2x4x16s.  That pretty much ruined my good luck on that.  I have no idea how I am going to span a 18 foot gap with a 16 foot 2×4 for the walls.  I did not want to have to put in another 6×6 post.  I am not sure what I am going to do now.  I’ll figure something out.  Nothing ruins a good mood like a swift kick in the balls… even if it is just figuratively.
