Complete construction details for pseudo timber roof

pseudo ˈsjuːdəʊ’ – adjective = not genuine, fake,sham
Having a timber roof on top of flat reinforced concrete roof slab is a design practive that has been becoming more and more preferred in the past few years. Even though constructing a double roof structure (both slab and timber roof) might be a little more expensive ( some may argue differently ) it can provide a double layer of thermal and waterproofing insulation for a building. Some may say that since the timber roof is only constructed with light sections and there is no need for heavy trusses it might cost much less and is much faster in construction time.
We would say that for complex shapes buildings, designing and constructing a regular timber roof with trusses, many cornens, hips, valleys etc might be a bit compersome. And this is where the pseudo timber roof comes in.
Included in this bundled collection :
This is a must have collection of details when designing such pseudo timber roofs. In the case where designing a regular timber roof, one can easile replace the timber posts and primary rafters with much heavier section hip rafters or even wooden trusses depending on span and design. With simple CAD commands this detail can be made to fit all possible design situations.
