I have a wood truss design that I would appreciate feedback on. This truss is to be used for roof support on a barn. It uses 2x4's (flat side out) for chords and diagonals with OSB "gussets" nailed on both sides. The trusses have a 20 foot span, 4:12 side slope and spaced at 24" on center. The nails are to be driven and "clinched" (bent over on the far side). With the double shear on 10d nails I need 6 nails per member on the largest loaded connection. Some connections are not concentric, so this number would go up. Things I was wondering about: 1) Will OSB work OK vs. plywood in this application? 2) What is the recommended nail spacing and edge distance? 3) Any other special considerations for gusset size? 4) What is the best way to brace the bottom chord for wind uplift?
