Re: Hand Cutting A Roof After A 10 Year Break


It was really fun just doing the cutting and packing and watching these guys put it together.

This is a father/son builder who does all his own framing and quite a bit of the other phases. Very detail oriented crew....it was a blast. Chet was northern, east coast raised so he has a very "precise set of skills" when it comes to carpentry. He stands out above many others out here on the left coast.

They deck it tomorrow or Thursday, so I was trying to find the equation we used to use to keep roof plywood "true".

I think this is it (attached image for common pitched hip/valley roofs). If I have it wrong, let me know and I will correct it.

I'm thinking of starting a framing equation/calculator thread to archive what we have learnt over the years, so the next gen can have a running start....thoughts?

That hip-valley cut is measurement D in the newer rafter book that guy McIntire did. He's from Maui.
