sprucegum, not allowed to build my own trusses for this (or anything else) per town inspector. I had to get a permit to build this little 8×10 building. :)

You and I both know that simple trusses like this …. I mean c’mon… the truss place has them with 2×4s for top and bottom chord with a single vertical (web) in the center. Done. Oh and that’s 2×4 on 24” centers

Doesn’t matter. I’m ordering lumber tomorrow. I need to get out of “analysis paralysis” and actually get started… hehehe
