Re: 10x12 shed rafters


Seriously, some inexpensive pulleys and a rope are all he needs to lift a lot more weight than he can carry.

Well, yeah, I guess you could assemble trusses while you're standing on a ladder and balancing everything on the top of your walls. Of all the possible ways this could be accomplished, this seems like one of the more awkward.

Re: 10x12 shed rafters


Man you people love trusses. I see all these posts about trusses. I went with 2x4 rafter at 16OC attached to ridge board. There is a bit more climbing up and down with the rafters, but it worked out great for my situation. After hanging the rafters by myself I realized trusses would have been a massive pain in the rear trying to heave them up an 8 foot wall.



Thanks to all of those who actually helped with what I wanted to do rather than talking off about trusses for some reason even after I made it clear I wasn't going to do trusses. What is it about forums that make people push their own preferences on others even when it clearly is not what they want to do? Makes me feel like some liberal agenda is being forced on me when Ive made it clear I dont want it and I live in California haha. I know what it feels like to have the liberal agenda forced down you throat.



Seriously though. Thank you everyone

I think it is just a human thing, I am glad you worked thru what ever bad time we gave you and got it done.

Must be a human thing. People do seem to have a hard time respecting others processes and methods. So many people just cant seem to wrap their head around just because something works for you or is your preferred method does not mean it will work for me or be my preferred method.

It is funny how some of the best new ideas come from the guy that does not know how it is done. In a different industry I saw a new guy do something that made sense to him but was not the normal, the rest of us that where there just looked at each other, like why didn't we think of that.

With in a year that upgrade in procedure was in instruction manuals from manufactures from all over the world. And that was 20 years before the internet.

Re: 10x12 shed rafters


Made my own from 2x4 - 24" OC- same scenario - hand picked all the lumber at the HD, loaded all by myself, unloaded by myself. built them and placed onto the structure. only diffreence is, my shed is 10x20, so I had a few more rafters than you. I also sheeted it myself and roofed it too. youre overthinking it, especially going 16" OC. 24" is totally do-able.
