Overframed roofs

Recommended Posts

Is there an easy way to prevent overframed roofs from cutting into existing roof planes?  I have this condition often when doing an addition and I would think there was an easy way to do this.  Any suggestions?  Thanks.

You can use a truss base and it will overbuild even if you have no trusses

Post the plan if you are still having trouble. Someone will fix it.

DZ, can you elaborate on this method a little bit? It sounds interesting

Generally I just pull the base of the main roof plane back to the bearing wall line from the intersection with the overframe.

Then bring the overframe onto the main body.

This allows the main body to stay continuous while the overframe lays on top.

Brian ,I just tried to use the truss base and it doesn't work anymore, with conv. framing. Don't know when this got changed. I pretty much manually build my roofs like Rob described above, so didn't notice. Sorry about that and thought you wanted this to work with auto roofs

Roger that. I'm also doing manual roofs 100% of the time now. Finally got the hang of it but I'm always interested in new methods.
