That was just studs, you cant take your floor truss and shove em! All floor trusses, just another step up, 2 laps siding UFPI01 September 11, 2010 at 11:30 pm There is a crown built in Open Joist with the exception of 148 3/8 through 162 1/2 because they’re specific to Manufactured Housing. Open Joist trusses are flipped so they have a web/vertical located directly above the carrier to provide shipping support. This crown will also help in the ability of the product to have a memory when heavy loads are put on the joists during construction such as shingles or bundles of dry wall. The product will not be damaged as easily as a plated floor truss. sameprecision September 12, 2010 at 12:06 am Do you build these flat or is there a crown built into them?
