We had some trusses one time that had a hinged gusset near the top. It was basically a half truss and you swung that top member up to meet the top member from the other side. They have to be cut like that to allow them to swing up without binding.

Here's a closer look.

Thanks again, everyone, for all your advice!

Thanks for posting that 32.

I have to say Iíve never seen anything quite like that one before. Iím sure itís all engineered and is just fine.

I see now that board stretchers really do exist, in the manufactured home industry anyway.

It looks like they scabbed on another piece (minus the gang nails) for the tail.

You have an awful lot of light showing through there for no bird blocks. Is there a closed vented soffit?
