Passive House Roof

We set all the roof trusses on the Passive House we are working on. Our carpenters are just now finishing the roof decking. One pitch of the house…the front face…is fairly steep with a 12/12 pitch. This required toe holds and tie off slings to keep the workers safe.  The back pitch of the house and the entire garage roof is lower and we can walk on it without difficulty.

The structural engineer added quite a bit of truss bracing to the trusses, creating a very interesting geometric pattern.
