Bevel cuts necessary here?


Building a California frame tie in for gable. Is it required to cut these long bevels as shown in the first picture? Versus the other way shown in second picture.

The second one is fine let the sheeting run right over to touch the other sheeting.
Our truss companies supply truss sets for that and then you don't have the soul plate, just sheet on sheet.

Thanks Neal. I wonder why some guys do that difficult bevel cutting.

One more thing, I noticed 2x material for that area too. Why not 1x? Get it closer to the sheathing.

The ends of the rafters can land away from support from below so it has to be enough to spread that load. A 1 x may not be stiff enough. And how many different specs. do you want to deal with while on the roof.
