I am building a recreation room on the side of my house and want to use roof trusses. The lenght the truss will have to span is 29ft from wall to wall with an 1ft over hang for a total length of 31 ft. I want to use 4-12 pitch and was wondering if anyone could tell me how high the truss will be at the center. I have an up stairs window that may be a problem and I need to know before I order the trusses.
