    Hi everyone,
    I Have got a question about truss roofing, I am currently putting one up not done many before( but have cut and pitched many roofs before)
    Tthis roof is is a T shape with with 2 gables and a hip at one end. When the trusses were delivered I noticed there was the girder truss and and 3 smaller ones that attached to it. But there was no hip or jack trusses supplied but there was extra timber supplied so I have assumed that I am meant to cut my own hip and jack rafters and put them in. Could anyone tell me if this is correct or if the extra trusses have been left out.
    hope this made some sense.

    you need to be putting that question to whoever designed or specified the trusses as they should have a full understanding of the overall roof design and loading
