Truss Plates for Gable End Truss Construction

Metal connectors for gable truss constructionGable Trusses With Metal Connector Plates

With my shed building plans, all my gable end trusses are constructed using metal mending plates on the outside of the gable truss.  This is primarily due to the fact that if the truss was built with wooden gussets on the outside you wouldn't be able to sheet it properly.  

So the outside has all metal mending plates and the inside has a mixture of wooden and metal mending plates as shown in the pictures below.
