I know how to lay out common and jack rafters with a framing,by stepping them out on the selected pitch.
What i would like to know is how to step out hips and valleys.on a common you go with a 12 inch run and what ever pith 6,7,8 what ever.but to step out a hip or valley you would have to increase your run.
How do you figure out what to increase your run to on differant pitchs for hips when stepping them out with a framing square
