This bird has a beak! Not sure of the answer to your question - perhaps a tail?

These are certainly odd. They are only on six of the middle purlins, on every other one.

Wow, we got a real mystery on our hands!

Clearly we need more pictures.

You can see from this shot that once everything has been painted uniformly, the mystery boxes will be hardly noticeable. Still though.. what is their purpose?

Otie, could it be any opportunity that it's place for installation of fans for ventilation inside volume of purlins to prevent dew condensation in inside surfaces of purlins?

Mystery "boxes"

Could the mystery "boxes" be weights? Simply welded there to keep the infrastucture stable but once it is finished the mystery boxes will be removed?


Have you notice how the painting is not being done uniformly? they seem to paint some spots on the rafters but never the tips of them. Why?

Could the mystery boxes be containers for lights, to illuminate the structure at night?

Maybe those mystery boxes are there to add weight to the purlins so that it bends in a certain way to make sure its aligned??

I am sorry for silly question, but how is going to look the right side of this picture. Are all those structures gonna be removed ? If so, when ?
