Residential dropped end trusses (also referred to as gable end frames) are commonly used to achieve up to a 2′ gable overhang. The end trusses are built with lower top chords that allow 2×4 lookouts or ladder sets to be placed on top of the end truss and nailed to the first common truss. Dropped end trusses also have vertical nailers at 2′ on center to allow sheathing to be applied. Dropped end frame trusses are professionally designed with state of the art computer programs. The lumber components are precision cut and assembled together with galvanized steel truss plates in a factory controlled environment. Trusses save time and materials compared to conventional hand framing.
