Rotating rafters

Recommended Posts

Glue two pieces of 3/4 CDX together to make a 1 1/2 inch thick sheet. Cut pieces out that will fit the void at the top of the trusses and glue them in place to provide support to the rafters. Glue/staple some 1/2 inch plywood gussets on top on both sides.

Not too hard to do and the glue (Titebond II Premium) is stronger than the wood.

I don't know about the ones that rotated. Might have to open up the roof to change them.

Where's Kurt? Few can sing like him on a lot of topics that come up here.
