There are two basic categories of roof framing: truss and conventional. Truss roof framing involves the use of components that have been fabricated elsewhere and delivered to the jobsite ready for installation. Conventional roof framing, on the other hand, is done almost entirely on-site with basic construction tools and materials. This module focuses on conventional roof framing, and introduces students to the skills they'll need in order to lay out and install a conventional roof.

- Registration for each class closes one week prior the start of the class, in order to provide our instructors enough time for planning and materials prep. Late registrations may be accepted at the discretion of American Workshop. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to register less than one week prior to the start of class.
- Classes have a 48-hour cancellation policy. No refunds will be given for cancellations that occur less than 48 hours before the class starts. If a registered student does not show up, and does not give more than 48 hours notice, he/she will be billed for the day.
- For cancellations that occur more than 48 hours before the start of class, American Workshop will reschedule the student for free for the next available class. Refunds may be given at the discretion of American Workshop.
- If a student comes to class who has not previously registered, accommodations may be made but only at the instructor's discretion. If the instructor allows the student to attend, a $50 unregistered-student fee will apply for the day.
