Gable End Truss over walkway siding problem

Recommended Posts

I have been working on trying to get this gable sided for several weeks now.  I'm showing the end gable truss, but it will not extend over the vaulted ceiling covering the walk to the front door.  I've used invisible wall, Attic wall, even tried pony wall... If I extend the wall into the vaulted ceiling area, the bottom of the wall pokes down through the vaulted ceiling.

I've attached pictures.

Thanks for the help

Is the wall marked as invisible?

 

Is there anything under the wall to hold it up? Normally an end truss goes over a wall.

It seems to be. 

 

Maybe post the plan file?

Plan file is 28 Meg.  Any way to cut it down a bit..  Almost a complete house with furniture and the works.

I will put a beam back under the wall and keep working with it. The truss will still extend up over the vaulted entry walk.

Copy and delete everything but the structure.

And keep in mind that any truss generated by the program is just a placeholder for one that will be designed by an engineer.

Finally got it sized down.

Truss company is doing my truss plan and Engineer is doing floor, foundation and load points.

I still do not understand the problem.

 

Your end truss -- I colored blue for clarity.
