  •  Building - Grower/Finisher Truss Roof (PDF)
    This plan gives details for a clear-span barn with natural ventilation openings at the two long walls and the roof ridge. The pen part is 12 x 28.8 m (40 x 96 ft) with two rows of pens facing a center alley. This will house about 650 pigs ranging from 23 to 90 kg (50 to 200 lbs) live weight; typical continuous production (based on 14 weeks growing-finishing period) theoretically could yield up to 2400 pigs marketed per year, although 1500-2000 would be typical. Building length can be adjusted in increments of 2.4 m (8 ft). Pens for this plan can be 1.2 to 2.4 m (4 to 8 ft) wide, and 5.3 m (17 ft 8 in.) long.
  •  Roof Trusses, Erecting and Bracing
    A truss rafter roof system, properly designed, fabricated, erected and braced, is a strong and economical way to frame a farm building roof. However, if the design assumptions are ignored during erection and bracing, the structure may collapse. Individual trusses may fail if damaged during transport and erection. This plan outlines procedures and precautions recommended to ensure safe truss erection.

  •  Building - Hay Storage with Trusses
    This plan set of five sheets gives complete details for building a clear-span, pole-frame hay storage barn. Building length and width can be adjusted to suit; clear spans of 7.2, 9.0 or 10.8 m (24, 30 or 36 ft) can be obtained by building or buying trusses to match the width. A span of 10.8 m (36 ft) provides the most efficient storage. This plan differs from Plan 7601 in that roof trusses are spaced at 2.4 m (8 ft) on center, and the roof purlins are fastened on edge to span the wider space between trusses.
  •  Roof Trusses for farm buildings
    This plan provides details about the trusses that are used for farm structures. These trusses will handle roof loads for low-human-occupency farm buildings under dry service conditions. Truss connections and member sizes are based on 18.5 mm (3/4 inch) Douglas fur Plywood, 76 mm (3 inch) spiral concrete nails, and No. 2 S-P-F Canadian lumber. Precautions should be taken when selecting the truss plan taking into account the truss spacing, the roof dead load and the roof snow load. Do not use the trusses for high-human-occupency buildings that many people may occupy over extended periods such as auction barns, show arenas, and riding stables with bleachers.
