ricatic Posted February 20, 2020 Share Posted February 20, 2020 I have been struggling for two days trying to build the ceiling planes in the kitchen and living room using trusses. I have read the knowledge base and watched the videos. The desire is to have a half vault ceiling in the living room using a 5 pitch lower pitch and 8 pitch upper pitch. The kitchen ceiling is flat at 102". The truss will rise vertically at the room divider to meet the 5 pitch height. The rooms are centered at the grid line in red which is the C/L of the house. If you look at the garage you can see I was able to construct an attic truss providing a bonus room with stairs...yeah... I know the stringer penetrates the deck at the top level but frankly after spending a bunch of time with the stair tool I gave up when I got to that point...fix it during construction with a chain saw...as an experienced user of stair calculators I know the stairs fit but the overly complicated stair tool drove me to distraction ... Regarding the truss design...I know the truss company can build the trusses but I would like to know how to draw them in HD 2020 Pro...my skill set has increased exponentially but I must surrender on this battle...any help is appreciated...file attached Note: This is my own house but I am using this as a portfolio design to show potential customers sent by a couple different lumber yards what the designer is capable of providing...
