Structural Gable Truss for Garage Door Opening
Basic structural framing question here:
Is anyone familiar with the practice of using structural trusses (not gable trusses requiring full bearing support) so that a large barn door (18′ opening) below doesn’t need a ridiculous header?
Anything to consider when doing it this way? Can a structural truss still be ordered ‘dropped’ for 2×4 lookouts (18″-24″ overhang planned).
Seems easy enough, but haven’t brought it up with the truss company yet…
Live-in-attic truss for what it’s worth. Barn.
