Rafters at Ridge – Butt Joint

Timber Frame Rafter

A butt joint is one of the simplest ways to join two rafters together at the peak and is just one of the timber frame joints that we have on our site.

This is the most basic way, which is to butt the two rafters together. Most of the time, these are secured to each other with metal fasteners. But you could peg them.

  1. I purchased and am building your 12′ x 16′ timber frame (plan #8049). It appears there are no instructions on how to secure the rafters to each other or to the top plates and ridge. What are your recommendations?
