  1. The more times I watch this, the clearer it becomes. I've seen several different videos on rafter layout, and all are very similar except for small differences in their methods. You are a good teacher.

  2. HELLO SHANNON, I was wondering if its possible to transfer the location of the "RAFTERS TO THE RIDGE BEAM" using either the top plate or bottom plate while the ridge beam is on the ground:??? thanks again,PATRICK.P

  3. WOW! WHAT GREAT VIDEOS !! THANK YOU VERY MUCH; I,VE BEEN WATCHING YOUR VIDEOS FOR SOME TIME I "TRULY LIKE YOUR STYLE; I ATTEMPTED TO DOWNLOAD THE RAFTER FORMULA (PDF) I DID NOT SEE IT AVAILABLE TO DOWNLOAD?? I REALLY WOULD LOVE TO ONE IF POSSIBLE; THANKS AGAIN,PATRICK.P

  4. Ridgeboard height. Unit Rise (6) x Total Run (3)= 18" + HAP (2/3 width of rafter, on a 2×4 this would be 2 1/4") – 3/8" Ridge Drop. That should give you a ridge height of 19 7/8". He says there is no magic number for the birds mouth but generally the rule is 2/3 the width of the lumber. On a 2×6 rafter it is 3 3/4"

  5. Fantastic seeing trigonometry & measurement in these videos; math observed not just in theory, but applied alongside real world examples. It's been a great tutorial.

  6. I am a machinist…it look like everything is all about a right triangle….need to know two side before working on the project we the the slope is your angle…take rise divide run = angle…nice videos

  7. At 05:25 you should of said deduction of 1.5inches for the ridge rafter instead of 13/16th which is almost equal to 1.5inches. 13/16ths sounds confusing untill i figured it out
