Trusses can be tricky, but the results are pretty cool. In this video we will lay out a roof framing plan using a flat Howe truss. We will then atttach the truss top chord to the roof giving it a pitch. Then we will need to change the steel truss to a better looking wood truss. Lastly, we will cope the join conditions to not look so rediculous.
