during the winter months, there is an increasing gap between the top of my walls and my ceiling.usually no more than a 1/2 inch along the center wall and smaller amounts along walls that go from center of house to the sides. as summer comes the gap grows smaller until there is no gap at all.i have a truss roofing system. is this normal,should i be concerned about it.if so, how do i fix it.

I also have a little about truss uplift in the crown molding tutorial on my site that may explain it as well. I think the 3rd of the how to install crown pages? You'll find it under owner notes.
