Trusses

Recommended Posts

It's helpful to have an image (screen capture) showing the issue as often it will be enough to provide a suggestion, and eliminate the need to download and review a plan.

Thank you for sharing your plan, I took a look to see what you are speaking of.

 

1.The first thing to understand about framing and trusses in Home Designer software is that, especially about trusses they are pre-programmed to file the void between the top of the ceiling and the bottom of roof planes so they just fill the void that YOU create in a model.

 

2. The software is not a substitute for a State licensed Structural Engineer who is the ONLY person who is allowed by law in all 50 States to design and adjudicate their design.

 

3. So any trusses you create using a software program are at best purely conceptual.

David I realise we are not truss engineers but shouldn't both sides of a truss be the same , I think I have wall heights etc. the same or am I missing something.

Thanks for your reply.
