roof deck and cantilever

Recommended Posts

Hello

I am working on a new design that incorporates roof deck over living area that is continuous with a cantilever portion. 

The image shows where the floor system will cantilever out on both floors. Where the yellow highlight is will be a floor truss. My idea is a 7-8' cantilever with a 26' building width but I will have to talk to the engineer when that time comes.

So I want for the floor trusses to extend out and I want to represent it that way in the drawings.

I've studied many threads but I'm not sure of the best way to do this. 

I want a larger fascia. I want the gutter concealed behind the fascia and I want a railing on top.

 

 

I think that I should:

(going to call floor 2 = ceiling of floor 1 and floor system for floor 2)

make a deck on the right side (since there is no room underneath it.

make a balcony over the deck on the left and a deck over the open space.

turn off deck framing. change deck framing height to match truss height. define the floor finish thickness to represent my roofing which i will fix up in section.

when I build trusses, extend them out of the building.

 

for floor 3:

define a flat roof and make it look like a deck. use a nolocate, nodefine railing wall to make the parapet. define overhang etc etc in roof framing.

 

Please advise.

Thanks

Just draw the decks,  period. Use the deck railing tool, easy! Try it and see what happens
