Frames come in a variety of different shapes and sizes depending on the type of construction of the roof. The types of frames that can be assembled are gable roof, sloping ceilings, vaulted or attic. A residential roof frame can be between 4.5 and 15 m. The size of a frame depends on the length and height, or magnitude of the roof inclination and flown addition if necessary. Due to new technologies and ease of assembly and use, most new homes are built with frames.
- Find a large open area outside to lie the roof frame as its being constructed. When completed, it will tilt up to be secured on the roof.
- Prepare a table saw. Most 2”x4” wood frames will have to be cut to size. Measure and mark the wood and cut it off all at once to have it ready for construction.
- Place a piece of wood of 3.80 cm x 10 cm x 7.31 m as the lower strap of your frame. Make a triangle with two pieces of 5.48 m x 3.8 x 10 cm and join them at the top end, protruding 15 cm above the lower edges of the lower strap.
- Set the upper straps in the tip with a triangular metal reinforcement and fix the lower ends of the upper to the lower strut with triangular metal reinforcements. Use small nails to fix the reinforcements to the wood.
- Prepare two substrates 2.13 m x 8 x 10 cm long and affix between the upper and lower straps for support. Connect the upper ends of the two supports to the tip using nails. Join the lower ends of the two supports dividing the lower leg into thirds. Use triangular reinforcements to secure the brackets to the bottom tie.
- Cut two more supports both 91 cm long. Place the bottom of these supports, the same triangular reinforcement of the lower strut to the longer supports, and attach them to the center of the upper straps, one on each side.
