ricatic Posted February 24, 2020 Share Posted February 24, 2020 I have spent many hours trying to understand building a storage attic above the garage using attic trusses. I have a utility room between the garage and the house. I have built a half vault, no trusses there because I didn't want to have my head explode, ceiling in the kitchen living room areas of the house. When I attempt to build the attic room above the garage,as soon as I hit the enter key the attic blows through the utility room ceiling then through the common wall between the house and utility room and wipes out my vaulted ceiling. The half vault ceiling was created with soffits...I am ok with that at this time. I know that the truss manufacturer can build the trusses so the necessity for me to design them is moot..but I would like to understand how to do this...I believe it is a good tool to have in the portfolio I have read the knowledge base and watched the videos. I have tried building over the lower level, starting with a new 2nd level and deleting attic walls after the big blowout, raising the roof pitch to 9/12 and prayers to the CA gods... No success...My only specification that has a minimum is the garage ceiling...I would like 10' but can live with 9'6"...minimum needed for a garage door opener...
