Speeding up the roof raising....

I had a frame welded and inserted the frame in the gap after I cut the "top" off of the bus would that speed things up? The frame would look something like a ladder. Any thoughts?

speed up would be relative to how much time you had in the "ladder" and it wouldnt be as strong due to not over lapping the wall studs with tubing or channel (which is normal)

I personally think it would be alot harder to manuvere a huge ladder and get everything lined up, than to just raise the roof insert your "extensions" into the window posts

You don't need to follow any guide lines with this, since there is no def. way to raise a roof, the above principals I laid out have become the norm since they are time proven and work

Good luck with roof raise
