I am working on a project where the Architect is specifying a 0.5"/ft roof slope with a flat ceiling. Since the underside of the roof joists will be exposed he wants to use 4x12's ripped down to 5" at the ends. The problem is there is a hip and he would like the bottom to be flush. So following NDS guidlines for tapered glulams I have determined that a tapered glulam will work but how is this tapered full length?
Is it ordered custom, or has anyone had any experience with a full length glulam taper in the field?
