In Reply to: Hip Roof Supports and Cod posted by Matt M on September 02, 2003 at 08:31:57:
No code will tell you how to frame the hip roof-- they will only tell you the loading that must be supported, and the various attributes of the framing members in general. Check out the wood framing manuals of the American Forest and Paper Association on the internet. They have details and other explanations for your use. Actual calculation of member sizes, spacing and connections requires structural engineering expertise to select the correct member for the load and stresses involved.
