Balloon frame up to the underside of the scissors on the gable ends to avoid a hinge in the gable walls. At 145lbs and no taller than they are, they can go either way on install but a truck would sure make for a more fun day."I don't understand that..

I think I remember ak described lofting one out on the floor in a thread recently.
