How to building roof trusses from start to finish. These we made for our house.
Fantastic job ! Love your assembly line technique. Your work pace (smooth and steady) and I can tell you both take great pride in your work. Enjoying life and building your home. I was very impressed and enjoyed watching !
You take great care and obviously enjoy getting it right. Good on you. If you are building on site though , why didn't you just fit custom fit rafters to get more attic space or high ceilings?
additional alignment boards on corners, clamps instead of screwing to pattern boards and larger putty knife to spread glue.
Music to screw to!!!!
Awesomeness!!! Keep up the video's
looks like a lot of work, but nothing better than the satisfaction of do your own stuff all the time.
would of been better if you would of talked about the design of the jig ! but very nice set up !
As much as I like the idea of making your own trusses, I think it's debatable if anything is saved in an operation like this over manufactured trusses. It looks like a good design though.
you could drive a truck on that roof… good stuff.
I'm sure it is different in various parts of the world, but around here you can buy trusses and prefab walls from companies for less than the lumber and labor to build them. They even deliver and have cranes to position them in place.
Great Video and Awesome they Staggered the joints! Lady using a flat trowel really should use a gapped one for better / more coverage
I usually mist my Gorilla glue just before mating up.It kick starts the foaming.
Looks great, Did you do you own calculations or hire an engineer to design the truss…especially the gusset connections? At first glance it “looks” adequate, but knowing how my engineers obsess over connections, I’d want to know they ran calcs.
Excellent team work. Thank you for sharing.
Lots of “Laid Off /Unemployed“ truss builders commenting here.
I did something similar however I used PL 400 on all the points where one piece joined another.
I wonder how often it's done on site like this?
Little bit of construction adhesive would be wise investment of expense and time. I live in a hurricane zone so we go all out on adhesive and ties that other areas don't bother with.
Patients is a virtue my friend. 👍👍👍
When screwing into end grain you should always angle the screws. Going straight into end grain has very little holding strength.
de walt drils, not good, not handymnot longlife drill. poor men shit drill, same than black decker totally amateur tools not comfortable and strong.
normal used nails, factory and home diy.
I bet these trusses are incredibly strong!!!
I have a feeling this is going to be good
Isn't it a little stupid using screw's and very expensive, When you could use a nail gun with screw glue nails? Who in there right mind would want to pay for all them screws???
hmmmmmmKWhat state/county are you in that you can build your own trusses?
9:08you don't want your trusses to have any funk! LOL
why were there no trimmers under that header? i could be wrong but i didnt see any
Все-таки дерево не металл, у него другие свойства. Строить фермы из металла можно, а строить по аналогии такие же фермы из дерева, это не самая хорошая идея.Вот нахера он эти дощечки прибил? Они не будут давать той жесткости, какую дают металлические пластины в металлических фермах.
хм а где диванние експерты ? -))
would have liked to seen double cuts on the web pieces to butt against each other but, other than that nicely done folks! 🙂
can you use this same method or similar method to build floor trusses
That high-five is so sweet! being able to enjoy doing things with your honey is priceless! Mine left me 3 years now, I am 57 and at this age being alone is terrible.
Good job by yourself but isn’t more easy 2×12 pitch roof?
Holy crap, those are awesome… I had a jig I built on the floor of my garage that I built, but I was younger then, worked good, the table is neat idea.
Why not use 2×12 rafter instead
Can’t use them in Ontario Canada. They are illegal now. They have to be engineered
When it done completed, using the crowbar to pry it up from the table…. CAN IT DAMAGING THE LOCATORS? Just asking., What if one side of the locators with removable 3/8 of spacer… hoping this will help. Let me know what do you think. Thank you.
What is the distance between both walls? I'm trying to design essentially the same thing, but need to span 28'. I am not a professional and really want that single pitch roof. I really don't want to pay an engineer. Is this possible to do on your own? can you suggest any books etc…
Just beautiful.. Safe and smooth work.
Looking at the scenery I can understand why your building your house there.
Awesome ! 1000 thumbs up !
Wouldn't be easier and cheaper just to buy em?
What screw are you using?
все отлично. по моему сверло длинное. цепляет вторую доску
