Note in Material list 20x30 1/2
« on: April 21, 2011, 01:34:54 PM »
There is a bullet point that reads: 1.   Trusses by truss manufacture. Be sure of Layout before cutting header material.

What header material is this talking about and how does it releate to trusses that are manufactured?

I assume that is a standard caution on the point loads of the trusses falling on wide headers over windows and doors. Since this is the 1-1/2 story plan you are unlikely to have headers in the pony walls. But headers on the main floor walls should be sized to carry both the roof and floor loads.
None of us are as smart as all of us.
