truss, block, truss, block..........
Just got the newest FHB and it has an artile by Lary Haunn on rolling roof trusses,
Ive noticed in this artile, as well as his books and films, that he installs a rafter or truss, then the block, then the next rafter or truss.
Is this a regional thing, do many of you do it this way ??
we like to roll all the trusses, then go back hang facia boards, then block. This leaves the plate fully open for walking or leaning out to hold up the facia boards
however lke his artile points out , it would stiffen up the trusses from the start, and we have not done a roof higher then a 8/12 that had a 36'span, maybe in that situation it would help
I would think that if a person was to truss, block, truss, block. after the first one is up, why bother to loose time on marking layout, use the pre-cut blocks to hold you on layout
not being critical of Haunn, have admired him and had his books since first editions, and learned a lot from him.............just curious
