Hip Sets 1
A study of a stepdown and midwest truss hip set. The roof primitives were created with the Medeek Truss Plugin. A stepdown hip set provides a girder truss, with a hip jack running from the corners up the ridge until they meet the hip girder. The Midwest hip set also provides a girder truss, with hip trusses that step up to the peak. However in a Midwest hip set, you run a rafter up from the corner of the front wall to the hip girder. All the bottom chords of the end jacks run to the hip girder, allowing for better attachment of the drywall on the ceiling. Note: Not all interior truss webs are shown for clarity. #hip_set #midwest #stepdown
