The search function on this forum can yield immediate gratification:

Cutting a bird's mouth cut in a rafter?

Excellent old school info from WillieT. Using his explanation you will plainly see that a flat roof rafter gets no bird's mouth cut!

Birds mouth


This is perfect timing for me. I'll be cutting and installing ceiling joists tomorrow and rafters this weekend. I've got a couple of books, but Willie T's explanation is as good as I've found.

Thanks!
