Re: Wood Truss on Metal Studs

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I would do what you just mentioned,

Use double wood top plates which can span across your studs and will also act 
as a collector and a chord for your diaphragm.  You can attach the truss 
using simpson connectors.

This has worked really well for me.
