All I do is find center where the ridge board will rest then get your plane lines for the sleeper and ridge, the sleeper is what the rafters need to rest on as well as the ridge board. then pull your layout (i usually tac a nail at each mark on the sleepers to pull my measurement from to the ridge). Then you may or maynot need to coller tie the rafters.kevinnj said:i am a carpenter,s helper in nj and we are framing a blind valley on a 8 in 12 pitch roof and the addition part is 8 in 12 also any thoughts i thank you
