Does anyone know how to draw these parapet eaves? They are not common here and I've only seen them used in one estate. If anyone has a cross-section drafted drawing of them, I'd love to have a look. Do they use a box gutter (big No-No in this area)?
If I use a soffit block, for some reason they don't touch and half the soffit block disappears. I've noticed this with using them as posts. If anyone can explain this, let me know.
I am afraid that this topic was mentioned several times, but never really answered.
I am working on house in Tucson, and this detail is killing me. It look like some kind of energy heel, but it's not. And I need these vertical ending web (stud, post, whatever) to attach other wall layers, and create a parapet wall.
Perfect truss for this is made by company from Sierra Vista, AZ, "Southwest Home and Hearth", http://www.southwesthomeandhearth.com/swt/trusstypes.htm, and they will probably be the chosen manufacturer, but I need to make this, because I need these trusses for interior (will be visible).
I tried all kinds of truss settings, to make it look like shown on image "Sloping-flat...jpg", but it just ignores me. And I don't have a clue in what direction should I go.
This is definitely possible, because entire list of trusses on that web page was made in Chief, but how did they do it?
How can I make truss like this?
Courthouse GH.planNeed help with creating framing for plan with parapet walls with roof that slopes in the long direction but with TJI's going across. (see attached framing and plan). I can think of several ways to do it cosmetically but I need accurate detail for framer. I can get the roof/ceiling I want except that its flat and I need a 1:12 pitch for both roof and the underside ceiling.
Thanks for your help
