Shed Truss Fascia and Overhang Framing
 
So I am building a shed as a project, no plans, just from scratch. I am getting prefabbed trusses for various reasons and have a general idea of how to frame up the overhangs, but I am sure I will miss something and I really don't want to mess it up. It will be a 4/12 pitch with a 12 inch overhang on all sides of the 8 x 12 shed. Does anyone have a good how-to guide, preferably with pictures? How about some pictures of it framed up before covered so I can see it all together?

Thanks so much!

The overhangs can be incorporated into the trusses when they're built..

i would use drop truss on gable ends so overhang doesnt sag

Sometimes gable end trusses are made 1-1/2" or 3-1/2" shorter than the other trusses you order. That's to help you extend the roof out a few inches over the gable end.

See the rest of the article with gable end pictures at:

Good to know about the shorter end trusses. What about finishing off the ends with the fascia boards and preparing for install the soffit vents and associated framing.
