I know there is someone here that does these things for a living, but I can’t remember who (or is it whom?)
My wife is looking at a floor plan or 2 and she keeps comonig back to some floorplans that have trusses that 26′ span between two walls (front and rear wall). We don’t want too much pitch( 6/12 or 7/12) and would like some vaulted area in the back half of the home. Is there a “rule of thumb” for when trusses start to get REAL expensive and is this a normal span?. Gotta keep construction costs down. Don’t want to finance the home.
Oh yeah, Needs 110mph roof load, on the Western Wash. Coast. No snow load, but it does snow sometimes at the beach
