**Q. When inspecting the attic in a home with a HIP roof you would likely find different trusses installed to frame the HIP. All the trusses listed below are used to frame a HIP roof.
True or False?**
Step down truss
Well, that ain’t gonna work.:shock:
Question still open.
stpdown- ?? false
What? I have never seen a hip built with a bowstring or a bell truss, unless it was a Pizza Hut.
Just to clarify.
All the trusses I posted were verified as members of the HIP family by 2 reliable sources.
Of the 4 examples I could find proof of 3 in use for a HIP roof.
I found no working example for a bowstring in a HIP although I did find reference to it as being used in a HIP assembly, no picture. I guess I was wrong on that.
I was a carpenter and built lots of projects over the years but I will never be famous for my framing skills.
Bradley say false and false it is.
Thanks for clarifying Paul. If a bowstring truss was used, it would be a dome roof. Debates welcome if that qualifies as a hip.
Congrats Brad. I’ll buy you a pizza! At Pizza Hut only.
You got it, but not in Illinois.
Ohh, that’s cold. But the State of Chicago’s pizza is the best. Oops, that sounds like a can opener. Did I just open a can o worms??
The worm cans are never closed at Internachi:mrgreen:
