It is very important that plywood clips are used between the rafters otherwise the sheathing will sag, and or bow.
Even though you have gone to the trouble to make all the rafters the same, it is very common that the tails will vary. Run a string line down down the tails to make sure they are straight, and cut if necessary.
Looks good! How big (length and width) can you go with this building technique?
@Simon Vancoillie That depends on the roof loads in your region, ie. snow and wind. But as a general rule I would use engineered trusses for spans of 14 foot and greater. Check with your local building department or a structural engineer.
The mountains in the background are beautiful. lucky dog.
Bill Wheaton i didn’t notice till I read your comment and got Goosebumps
Guys I am beginner in woodworking and i found a website named
*WoodBlueprints. Com* and i learn a lots of shed plans at their. i also recommend this website to all you guys
You obviously do not live in a heavy snow climate. 24″ centers on the roof will not hold up under a heavy snow load. I build all of my sheds with 16″ centers for the roof. I live in upstate NY and 2′ or more of snow on a roof is not uncommon.
+originalsbyterry You are correct. 24″ O.C. with 7/16″ O.S.B. is for 45 lb. snow loads. (15 lb. dead and 30 lb. live)
iCreatables Thanks for the vid. This is very adequate for SoCal. As we have two seasons, summer and summer lite. Someone mentioned snow, what’s snow lol.
Those mountains! 🙂 Is this in CO Springs?
@GrandPixel Wasatch Front in Utah. Thanks for watching!

I’m building a shed that’s 12.5′ x 12.5′. Will this truss style work for such a wide structure? Great set of videos. Thanks for any help.
can you tell me the size of the z flashing you used? Only z flashing I found was smaller than the one you used, and I am unsure whether to use it. Thanks.
+Mariano Castillo It was .4375 in. Made for 7/16″ siding. Thanks for watching

Did you use 2x4s for the fascia? Does it work well?
+bmpro 2×4’s were used for the sub fascia. Trim was installed over it.
06:45 What a backdrop!
Yeah I agree awesome view
Holy crap, I’ve watched this video like 10 times and I’ve never noticed that beautiful mountain view in the background while he’s installing the roof sheeting. So awesome!!

Those roof trusses are garbage…
