Energy Heel Roof Trusses Set and Sheathed

In a previous blog post, I mentioned how I would be using 'Energy Heel' Roof Trusses on the Starter Home 2.0 Project to allow for added attic insulation and air flow. On Wednesday, these trusses were set in place on top of the second floor wall framing and sheathed with OSB, capping off the basic form of the house (minus the front porch and steps). So far, I think the project does a nice job of playing well with other homes in the neighborhood and getting some good visibility from the Pleasant Ridge Business District, while at the same time, maintaining a comfortable level of privacy.
