Roof Trusses without a room below?


Recommended Posts

We have covered balconies where the roof extends out several feet beyond the balcony room below.

One roof has no room below but does have a balcony 2 floors below.

How do you construct a roof plane  with a ceiling and a 16" deep roof truss?

Ok the roof truss start at 16" deep but slope 1/4" per foot to the gutter edge.

I keep getting a funky truss.

Ok I was able to drag the truss envelope to restore normal shape.

Something funky going on. the framing member has a large notch.

And the wall plate on the wall where the truss bears is lower than the side wall framing.

Something I'm missing, I unchecked soffit & flat under soffit.

Your walls do not have auto frame turned on. That wall is framed lower than the ceiling, but it'll build correctly by either rebuilding the framing for that wall, or for all walls.

The notched framing member is a rafter. I'd replace it with a roof beam.
