Truss Bracing

I am erecting a 15'x15; hip truss roof with a 1ft cantilever. I have 5 center trusses that span the entire distance & the rest are hip & jack rafters. I am concerned with adequate temporary bracing. Any suggestions would be appreciated

Truss Bracing

I would stand one center truss and nail it with a brace going to the wall then stack the other four. install the hip & jack on 1 side then remove the brace and stack the other side.

Truss Bracing

I lay the hip girder flat, nail in the mono jacks, tip it all up as one unit, that truss is now completely tied off and I can raise the next and block or brace it to the girder. Easy
