Video 4 – How To Build Homemade Trusses For The Shed

This is the fourth of 15 videos. In this video we will be building our own trusses on site.

Building your own trusses using plywood gussets is much easier than you may think. In this video, Henry shows you how to layout the truss jig, cut the rafters, the bottom chord and how to make the plywood gussets. It is important to use a good quality construction glue when building these.

Overall, we are sure you will be very confident building your own trusses after you watch this video.

IMPORTANT NOTE: These are not engineered trusses. It is up to you to decide if these will be strong enough for the area and climate you live. Also, if your shed is to be inspected, make sure these are acceptable to your building inspector before proceeding.
