Building 4/12 trusses for a small one car garage?


I am thinking about building some 4/12 gable trusses for a small garage I am planning on building. I am wondering is a wise idea?

I would either just buy ready made trusses, they're not that expensive. Or, for a one car garage, I would more than likely just cut rafters and stick frame it.

Far faster, stronger and almost the same cost to buy them prebuilt.

not to mention you have to get a engineer to sign off on the design in order to pass an inspection
