Odd Shed Roof - can it be done?

Recommended Posts

I have a client that is bidding a room addition. He insists that a shed roof can be used in this situation. I've racked my brain and worked around in CA plenty to know that this is impossible.

 
Am I missing something here? Is it possible to add a 3 and 12 shed roof here that lines up with the facia on the existing gable roofs ?
 
HERE is the plan file.

 
Thanks!

Shane, the quick response is much appreciated. However, that approach is too costly for this build out.

 

The contractor seems to think that it's possible with a 2 or 3 and 12 shed roof. I don't see how simply because a shed roof couldn't possibly wrap the corner and tie into the existing facia.

 

I've included a picture of the start of a shed roof that he is wanting. However, I can only provide a start due to the fact that I don't know how to build the shed roof that he is requesting. I've highlighted the new roof in the attached image.

I agree with Jimmy to do this you will need another roof lock the fascia if you want them the same then you will end up with another hip and 2 more valleys adjust your pitch to see what works the best or have different fascia heights

Thanks for the quick feedback guys. Glad to see that I'm not crazy... maybe his definition of a shed roof is different than what it really is. I'll have to work something else up and hope he digs it.

 

Thanks!

Entire house is a hip roof, maybe he not using correct roof term.

Well..... Here is one approach. This takes the

roof plane you started in post #3 and goes

about as far as you can with a roof plane with

a pitch of 2 in 12 and maintaining your fascia

height.

Hip/Ridge change would be labor intensive. Time for homeowner and builder to make some decisions. Good luck, =)

When I 1st looked at it I thought it would work  too ( the Contractor in me) from wall to old ridge (about 3deg.) but you end up with a weird side roof if you don't have the hip in there , but the choice would be the Owners I guess , since there is no budget to do it properly.

Nice solution Rich, understanding what the user wants is difficult some times, I think this is the best interpretation that could much his needs.

Yep. Those are about what I had come up with, with minor variation.  I will be posting the results after talking with the contractor. If somehow this guy figures out how to do what he is attempting, I will be sure to make a visit to the site with my camera and post pictures of the results.

 

Thanks a ton for the responses, everyone.

It can be done with a single shed roof @ 3/12 pitch. BUT a small saddle or some creative ridge cap work should cover. Picture shows issue. I'm done, my OCD has passed.
