Framing Question Trusses & Rafters

Recommended Posts

I have a plan with trusses & want to build Deadwood at top of truss & ledgers at the bottom of the truss. See attached

I can not use "Hang Floor Platform" on the wall at this time.

So do I need to add the framing member that attaches to the CMU wall by hand or is there a way to auto-generate?

Below is what is generated when I use "Build Roof Framing". I suppose I could drag the rafters down to the ledger position.

BTW I can not post the plan at this time.

 

Thanks

Edit your truss envelope so as to get the ledger notch.  Frame the ledger by hand, and same for the blocking.

 

Chief does a lot for us using the spec dialogs, but for this, you gotta do a little yourself.

Thanks Gene,

I've been doing it manually bit figured someone may have figured out a way to do more with the roof framing tool.

I think that is actually Chief's "Ridge" , so you could perhaps not build it ( 0"x 0")  and just place a Ceiling Beam manually, the rest is as you've been doing / Gene mentioned I think.
