Good day all. Am grinding through design considerations for a 16x28 cabin with half loft and had previously settled on a ridge beam design to support the rafters. Knee walls probably around 4 feet and 12/12 or 9/12 pitch roof. This is for a site that is 10 miles from end of the road, with everything hauled in by snowmachine.
The ridge beam design will have support columns inside the cabin, but I'm toying with the idea of using trusses instead and doing away with the ridge beam altogether. The boss wants a cathedral ceiling, so I figure the two options are parallel chord or scissor trusses. If we were located next to a road I'd have already made up my mind, I'm sure. As it is I have no experience with hauling trusses on a sled and wonder what experiences folks have had in getting honking big trusses to their build site.
Recommendations on hauling or alternative designs considerations would be much appreciated.
