Change Roof Rafter Direction To Run Parallel to Baseline?


Recommended Posts

I think I remember a thread or two regarding the subject and am working on an older house that has a parapet roof with the roof rafters running parallel to the baseline (versus the default perpendicular) and haven't found a method to reproduce the condition. I'm aware that Chief does not like to frame this way and can probably take care of any details/sections pretty easily but am curious about methods or workarounds.


Oh yeah the roof is not flat but only 1/4" ft slope.




Plan's attached

So you would like the pitch to run the long direction and the framing to run the short direction ?


Looks like Eric solved it again.   Your Signature could use an update Larry.
