Question Roof Framing

Does anyone know of a sight that shows details of Roof "Stick" Framing? NOT Trusses, I've found over a dozen sites but all show truss framing. Also, why do most sites say Truss framing is "Cheaper" when it's not? I checked pricing at five different lumber yards and three different Professional Framing companies and Stick Framing is less than half the cost of Trusses.

I beleive if you factor in the labor for scratch stick frame construction, the trusses will be cheaper.

I figured the labor in ...
...three different Professional Framing companies ...
It still came to less than half the cost.

Oh Well, still looking for a site about roof stick framing.
Thanks!

Well, That's sort of surprising. Maybe someone else has the answer for you.
Have you tried a google.com search for - 'roof stick framing'?

Hi Fred,
First off, Thanks for responding! Yea, tried Google, DogPyle and a couple others. Even tried various combos of the words How-to, roof, stick & framing. Found this site and dozens of sites selling books but offering no info. The thing is I used to be a Carpenter but as a result of an accident am on disability and have memory problems. I've got a couple of people to do the work but have to tell them what to do. I've forgotten how to do the riser and gable walls so I was trying to find pics to see how it's done.

Thanks again!
Lee
