    Here is a great one. Solar Panals on an old Private Dwelling. Also raises the question of venting the roof, even though I am with the group against venting the roof of PDs.

    Youre against venting the roof of dwellings? Just how the hell are you gonna properly vent that dwelling in your pics. I see about 1 window per side of the house, hardly enough to properly vent a room and contents using an aggressive interior attack. If you say PPV Fan, Im just gonna laugh at you.
    Just another one of the 99%ers looking up.

    Default The Vent of a P/D

    The question comes to risk vs benefit. I would much rather vent that window almost at the ridge-pole. By venting that window, which is most likely in the attic, you will defiantly get enough vent without killing yourself on those panels. Just watch out for the A/C in it (probably meaning that the attic area is occupied also!).

    I am just saying it is much safer venting a private dwelling horizontally, rather than risking your men on a modern truss roof. Unless of course the fire is in the attic, with no windows to vent. I feel by the time u vent a peaked roof, you can accomplish much more by getting a window as long as one is present. Otherwise a tower ladder as a platform will do to open up a peaked roof.

    p.s. - I am from the northeast, what's a PPV fan - lol, jk.

    I was more intrigued by the spaghetti of pwoer lines! How the hell do you get aerials/platforms/ladders/telebooms, etc (Or whatever you guys call them!!) into that sort of environment???

    Default I Agree

    Defiantly going with ground ladders if absolutely need to open up the roof. Like I said, would much rather like to try horizontal in your bread and butter private dwelling fire....

    Ken do you happen to have any pictures of the front side of the brick building with all the 2x4's being used for support?

    Unfortunately I do not have any other pictures of that building. I took the construction pictures in D.C. about 6 years ago.
