This project was a typical example of an Ecojoist-rafter roof design. This design is particularly popular where a client desires to have a high vaulted ceiling. The Ecojoist-rafters can be manufactured with a horizontal (seat) cut at both wallplate and ridge levels. This negates the need for ‘notching’ or ‘birds-mouthing’ rafters on-site, and standard metal hangars can be used to fix Ecojoist-rafters to a ridge-beam.
The catalogue of Ecojoist-rafters sizes available allow for increased spans to be covered without any additional purlins, while also catering for any desired depth of insulation in a warm roof.
