How to Cut Hip Rafters?

Answer

When cutting a hip rafter you will have to mark it out using 16.97 or 17' on the body of your pitch and on the young of your framing square. Side cuts of your hip rafter should be fitted properly to the framing and this does not go in 40 degrees angle, but would be less than that.
