Default Re: Gable house roof design

I'm with Mark, with very little practice you can figure out the cut and fold "tab" method. All you need are tin snips and pan head/metal framing/zip screws. I would think truss plates or brackets would only be necessary if supporting a very heavy roofing material (slate, or cement barrel type tile).
