Building Practices

“One of the advantages of trusses that are 24 inches apart is you have an exact load right at the ends of those trusses. When you line up your wall framing [with trusses] as Betenbough does, your studs are 24 inches on center so loads are transferred directly though the studs and it’s a much more sound structural building without extra studs in between. That’s one of the reasons Betenbough homes are so economic.”  Steve Bumbalough, AEC BIM Product Manager, Alpine, a Division of ITW
