A client asked for some help with a baby barn. Its dimensions are 16 ft long, 12 ft wide and 10 ft high at the collar tie on the truss. The chord length of the trusses are all 54-3/4 inches with 22-1/2 miter cut. The collar tie is a 8ft with the angle cut to tie into the top two chords. Trusses are to be nailed into the top plate of the 5 ft wall. That will make the roof flush with the side but I think we will flare out the roof to match the gable overhang of 6 inches.

 

He had already established the foundation and the 5 ft perimeter wall. On this trip I finished building the trusses and erected them with his help. We talked about how big he wanted the doors to be (barn style, tongue and groove) and how many windows. One window will go in the back wall and he’s going to pick up two for the front wall.

Then I framed the front wall centering the 7ft high x 6ft wide double doors. That’s as far as I got for the day.
