Balloon framing using a technique suspending floors from the walls was common until the late s, but since that time, platform framing has become the predominant form of house construction. Hanson Pivot Square makes it eady to lay out rafters. Remember if you are using the center of the ridge beam for your run R value, you need to subtract half of the width of the ridge beam to determine the length of the Common Rafter Measurement Line L.

    You can get these manufactured off-site or you can construct them yourself. To begin layout with the ridge board plumb cut, set the adjustable angle-blade to the desired pitch. Overhangs, hips, and dormers add greatly to the complexity of the framing. It uses long continuous framing members studs that run from the sill plate to the top plate, with intermediate floor structures let into and nailed to them.

    That has been passed down through the centuries. Most roofs can be calculated with a CMC calculator. Then lay the rafters out on a smooth, flat surface, with a 2-by between them at the ridge line. There are other areas in the roof that need to be studied, but these seven angles-techniques should be the base for all roof framers.
