        attic storage framing Sign In/Join 
        posted
        I was wanting to create some storage space in my attic. I see that the bottom truss chords have joints fastened with metal nail gussets. I'm thinking of sistering (reinforcing) some boards to the bottom chords for more strength.

        Question:
        If I use construction adhesive and some screws, will the glue hold with the expansion and contraction of the framing members??

        Choices:
        yes
        no
        depends
