Yes I am making a playhouse for my kids and I have got the frame up. Except for the rafters how do I go at what angle to cut them at? The playhouse is ony about 5 x 5 and I am just going to nail rafters on to corner post but how do I get the right angle so it meets together in center? I just want a normal slope on it.To explain a little more on 1 side I am going to nail a 2x4 on the each corner post and want them to meet in middle that is the angle I need. And then I will do the same for otherside,and then lay plywood across it. Thanks alot Steve
