Marking Plumb Lines For Ridge, Birdsmouth And Overhang

Snap a chalkline one third of the rafter's width, as shown in figure 37. Mark three points on the chalkline i.e one point on each end of the rafter line length and one point at the end of the overhang. Slide the framing square along the line to each of these points and mark a plumb line.
