This course is intended to help all instructors that teach roof framing by adding to and enhancing their working knowledge of rafters. While the focus of the class is to teach the basics of unequal pitch roof framing, it will include basic math concepts associated with calculating many kinds of rafters including unequal pitch rafters. Students will develop drawings to clarify rafter intersections, plan views to help calculate unequal pitch hip rafters, and comparative pitch drawings to accurately determine rafter heel height, or height above plate. Construction Master Pro calculators will be used. Shop exercises will include calculating, laying out, and installing rafters for unequal pitch gable roofs both without and with an overhang, unequal pitch hip roofs both without and with an overhang, jacks, and valleys. Safety in the shop is stressed. The class adds to the instructor’s overall knowledge of roof framing by providing insight, resources, and reference materials to increase his/her comfort level with many types of rafter framing.
