Re: roof truss connection

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Dave:
 
1. Full length plate at top of wall.  The question is how are you going to anchor the truss to the wall for Fp forces ?
 
2. Does the wall stop at the bottom of the truss ?  If so can you install (long) braces up to the roof?
The trusses themselves need bracing for out of plane wind loading.
