The 8×10 and 10×12 shed plans for the shed built in these videos can be found here:

In this video Henry teaches you how to install trusses on a framed wall. Everything you need to know is included in our detailed instructions – some of the main parts covered in this truss installation tutorial are:

– How to start the truss install
– How to use temporary blocking to make the truss installation safe
– How to line up your trusses for a perfectly straight ridge line

Part of the video showing how to secure the trusses to the walls was destroyed. Use 2 screws or nails diagonally on each end of the truss into the the top wall plate. We also recommend using hurricane ties on each end of the trusses (excluding the 2 gable end trusses) for extra hold down strength for high winds.
