Trusses

4 of 7 trusses placed

After spending a couple of days doing math trying to figure out the best way to build and place my trusses I finally got 4 up and in place. The things I had to think about when building and installing the trusses:

  • roof pitch
  • drywall attachment
  • light placement
  • lookouts
  • getting them centered correctly

Some of the things I’m sure are a lot easier for somebody that builds houses for a living but this is my first attempt and I’m having to learn on the fly. I know things would have been a lot easier if I just built a truss with a bottom cord. Which would have worked but I wanted the ceiling to be vaulted for adults and the lights to be up further.
