You know you’re getting to the end of a job when you start work on the ridge.
The roof frame is always the last frame that makes it’s way into the workshop having worked through crossframes, wallframes, and floor frames, and the ridge purlin comes after work has been completed on the purlins.
The junction of ridge purlin and the apex of the truss is a pesky little joint to work out, and of course it can’t be scribed modafinil200mg into place as it is impossible to set 5 or more trusses upright in the workshop!. Well, not impossible, but who wants to do it.
Great care needs to be taken with geometry to make sure that the ridge height accurately corresponds to the underside of the rafters – basically you need to get it in the right place and you only have one shot at it. No pressure then.
