What do I need here?


I have a 14x70 mobile home, although 30+ its in excellent shape. I need to reroof over a slightly domed roof. From center line of roof to edge is about 6" drop curve. I have trusses prebuilt and sitting on my lawn. I need to know how to attach a knee wall so its square.

This truss structure will clear the dome on the roof? What's the knee wall for? Will the roof structure of the mobile home support this additional weight?

rottie, You didn't give your location. If you are in the Hurricane or Tornado belt you need to proceed with care. If that is not a direct concern, then there still has been a national upgrade in building standards in the last 15 years for mobile homes. You may have a well built mobile home but the building standards 30 years ago were minimal compared to today's standards.
