Hi all, looking for advice on building a pyramid hip roof. As the hip rafters will be at a lower angle than the common / king rafters then won't my roof be uneven? ie my hip rafters will be sloping at an angle of 17° whereas I calculate the other rafters to be around 21°? Thanks
Hi scobiet If you drop a vertical from a point where the hip rafter and jack rafters meet the horizontal distance to the wall plate will be different in each case unless your hip is at 45 deg. Regards S
