I want an exposed-sheathing-open-eave look with the rafter tails decoratively cut at the ends. I plan to use roof trusses, and wonder if this is the way to do it. The attached pic shows a 5/0 long 2×8 with the end detail I want, sistered to the truss, whose heel height matches the 8/12 pitch 2×8. Is there an easier way?
