Wood Roof Truss Video

Hi, I'm Tim Carter and I'm at new residential construction site in New Hampshire. It's a cold winter day. I want to show you something that is neat about trusses and the things you can do with them.

I'm standing at the end of what will be the front porch of the home. Typically, carpenters would frame the roof of the garage (the wall behind the porch in this example) and after the fact, they would build the porch roof. But here, they made the garage roof trusses with extensions for the porch roof.

This shows that by planning ahead, you can get trusses that can incorporate more then one design. If you can dream it in your head, a truss manufacturer can make it. It's the simple.
