Looking to frame a lakefront home (30 x 42) with 10/12 pitch. I know truss’s would be simpler but we wouldnt get a loft and I would still be concerned about a little snag in the heavy snow load area.
It looks the the rafter span would be just over 19 feet which I thing would really be pushing the limits. If I did do a ridge beam should I do underpurlins midway on beam ? and if so would I notch a birdsmouth on the rafter of just let it sit on the corner of it.
Thanks very much
