That had to be a fun roof to cut Lone, I donít see any trusses there.
There are no trusses on any of those, except for the blue one with the large barrel roof. One section in the front of the building was done in flat topped trusses in order to span the entire width of the building. The remainder of the roof was stick framed into the trusses. The building actually has 5 barrels, which consumed over 100 sheets of 3/4" plywood to form the ribs of them.

It's not that it took him an hour to make 100 bucks, it's that it didn't take you 10 hours to save 100 bucks.

Also called a half hip here. Got one on my roof. Important thing on a thatched roof is the pointed end to ward off evil spirits.
