I’ve been talking to one of the editors at Taunton about trying to write an article about trusses. And he suggested posting here to see if you guys could come up with something that might help in the writing of the article.
What we’re thinking about doing is an article called the “Top Ten Truss Travesties”. Or “How your truss job can go to hell in 30 seconds or less”. (by Henry Gibson)
It would be patterned sort of like the recent article on Roof Goofs in issue #172. (The one with synthetic decking on the cover) The idea is to highlight some common problems that occur with trusses.
I know that problems with trusses are EXTREMELY rare. So most of you will likely not have anything to contribute. But maybe some of you have heard a story about something that’s gone wrong, and may be able to provide some info about the situation.
If you want an example of what I mean, I’d be happy to coem up with one.
Sex is not the answer. Sex is the question. The answer is yes.
