  • This invention relates to prefabricated buildings and comprises a central unit having a peripheral section therearound to form a main residential part. This peripheral part is defined by an assembly of juxtaposed roofing and facing trusses; the roofing trusses rest on said central unit and also on the facing trusses which themselves rest on a peripheral support wall. The facing trusses are of triangular section and have an inclined outer wall extending downwardly and beyond the said peripheral… CONTINUE READING
