Trusses like his can be designed for heavier loads. The standard residential floor load is 40 pounds per square feet. Commercial office loads area at 60 pounds per square feet. Actually, both can be obtained with proper design. That is a good example why most jurisdictions will not allow trusses that are field built (Home made).
His look like 40 pound per square foot design. If he has a home office, an apartment or similar he should be ok. The real key is how the trusses were ordered.
Daniel can enlighten us to that question.

The floor beam is a 2x8 and the trusses are 16" on center. I am not sure how that translates into how many pounds per square foot it can handle.

Daniel the shop is looking great. That is something to be proud of.

You say the shop is going to run aroung 35K. Does that figure include the site work such as the trees. And also does it include the foundation. You must also have saved some money by doing some of the work yourselves.

I really looking forward to seeing the project complete, and thank you for taking the pictures for all of us to see.

Trusses are engineered to a desired design load. Daniel will have the paperwork and know the capacity. You can't calculate a truss span with standard wood framing properties.

$35,000 does include taking down the trees and the foundation. The foundation itself was $12,000! We saved a whole lot I'm sure, though I don't know exactly how much.
