Putting up interior wall with truss roof in existing home
Asked Mar 1, 2012, 06:54 AM
I would like to put up an interior wall to separate my dining rm from the living rm. The dining rm has an 8ft ceiling that runs parallel to the wall I want to put up. I had asked the people who build the home and they said no problem. I have read so many articles on truss uplift I don't know what to think anymore. The ends of the new wall would connect to the side walls.My concern would be the top plate. I have access to the attic to put blocking in to nail the plate to but am afraid of the truss uplift. Any ideas please.
