The rafters are installed! The pitch is about 46 degrees, which adds plenty of space in the loft. We used more of our reclaimed cedar 2 x 4's for rafters. Below you will see that we have reinforced them with hurricane ties. Wind forces and road turbulence are always considerations when constructing a tiny home.
Hurricane ties here and at the ridge beam will keep our roof system unified with the rest of the house. These are Simpson brand, the most common choice for this application.
We framed the gable ends after we installed the rafters. Here you can see that there will be ample storage over the entry and front window seat. . . We have the home buttoned up due to inclement weather!
