Roof rafters ON ridge beam or butted to (with hangers)
I am framing a shop that is 22′ deep and has two 1 3/4×18″x22′ LVLs to span and it’s unclear to me whether the roof rafter can or should be butted or land on top.
From what I’ve seen it sounds like it can go either way depending on the situation, having the beam lower (head room) isn’t an issue. I can’t say I like the idea of notching the plumb cut but understand it just may be done and not adversely impact bearing, though I do prefer top vs side (just a personal preference).
(And apologies is this has been answered here but I didn’t find this specifically)
