I believe what he meant was it would be simple to frame your roof using traditional framing such as rafter, ridge board and ceiling joists.

I think we all understand you do not want water intrusion.

I was thinking of going with that but with just one person its much easier installing using trusses since I can put them up one at a time. Do you think you could look this up please and just give me your opinion on if you think this is good enough for the truss joints. I put a link below.

double top plate question


for what you're doing it'll probably work, not like there is a tremendous load on your roof

I mean its that or those plywood gussets. Don't you think the metal plates would be stronger than the plywood?
