I am interested in having a garage built and assume that most contractors
would be using a truss system. A neighbor has a garage with “storage” or
“box” trusses so that he has some attic-type storage space. His garage has
a 7/12 roof. I would like to get a 2-3 car garage built using these types
of trusses, but to better match my house I would need a shallower angle
(6/12 or 5/12). The span of the trusses would be ~34 feet.
Does anyone know if there are storage trusses made to shallow roof angles?
If so, how much storage space would a 5/12 or a 6/12 storage truss provide?
Is there a site that has this information or a way to calculate this?
