Alternative to douglas fir????
« on: March 08, 2017, 03:44:51 AM »
Our 20 wide 1.5 story plans call for 2x6 douglas fir for the site built trusses. I can't find douglas fir in our area.
Would spruce fir be an alternative or should I go with yellow pine?

I would suggest either having an engineer review them or check with the local truss plant about having them make something similar.
