GeneDavis Posted April 15, 2022 Share Posted April 15, 2022 This is more about architecture and aesthetics, but what the heck, I'll put it here rather than in chat. I am doing one of these with what I call slab roofs. Low pitched, large overhangs, no ridges, all shed-type roof planes. A look through the plans-sellers images, and in galleries at realtor shops, and also in the Chief sample files such as "Austin," and others with roofs like this, I see very thick roof edges. And this style demands thickness. The roofs must look like appropriately thick slabs. Austin has 1.5" x 16" subfascia, for example. The one I am doing does not have the mass in its elements to go 16, but still, it takes 12 to make it look right to me. My question to you, is how are you framing these type roof edges? Depths like this take a lot of 2x12 lumber, or composite rimboard lumber, or a buildup of OSB and sticks. Do you just say I give up and sock the timber to it? I attached a snip I took from one of the plans-selling websites. The one I am doing has about this scale. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
