Roof Design for Indonesia homes

Postby P. Rice » Sat Jun 02, 2007 6:24 pm


I am helping design homes in Indonesia for tsunami relief efforts and I am at the point of designing the roof truss system. I am trying to find information on the sizes of wood beams that I am use for the truss...which we are going with the Raised Tie Scissor design. Do you have any recommendations on metric sizes?

Roof truss design depends on the required load and spans. Ask a local architect for some help and give him all the loading detail together with building widths etc,
