By my math I should be able to raise a 78” tall bronco with full cab enough to work/park (a hot rod) under, also factoring for a 6” lift platform.

Anybody better at this than me and confirm I’m not nuts?

sorry didn't see this until now ....

6" heel, 24" cantilever trusses ... 6/12 pitch
designed 170mph wind, exc. C , FBC 2017 Res.

my cost to make them 1500.-


Hint ...if you 2-ply two of the trusses and place them at the proper location in the garage you could hang a hoist from the horizontal cord ....

also like to see block exterior walls ...

Not necessarily !!! only traditional Overhang 6/12 roof 4/12 max vault !!!


6/12 & 6/12 its called a parallel cord truss ... the only way to do them is by having a cantilever !

Glad I can help .... Boxes / garages w. standard trusses like that takes me nothing to engineer ( max 5 min ) and usually very seldom something I get to do !

Its when others say it cant be done or toss in the towel that clients somehow find me and stuff ends up on my Desk for a last chance look !
Never had I something I didn't find a solution for it .... " I am not that smart, its just that I stay w. problems longer !"

Aero Roof / Trusses .... once assembles, its going to take lots of trimming and sanding ....
but hey who said it cant be done ? Just show me the money !!!

The "truss" shape is ingenious .... Best ever ! almost no uplift values ..Love it ! next !

Franko—really appreciate the input. Obviously I’m pretty new to this. I hadn’t thought about doing a ‘double’ truss in main garage for a hoist but that’s an interesting idea. I already built a small gantry crane from another project and also planned to have hoist(s) in sub garage for misc items (truck topper and bronco cab).

I’d love to ask you to build the trusses but not sure they’d travel well...to Kansas.

That said, what are benefits in parallel cord over scissor? Higher load capacity?
