Valley Rafter Question

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

Asking a question here for a friend who is due to start building in the next month. The valley rafter for the front dormer seems to intersect with the gable end rafter but we are both wondering how a connection can be done between valley rafter and the main roof rafter.

 

Any ideas?

Is this the look you want?

I was initially told this was impossible. I was told the dormer / gables must have an "end" and could not carry on down to nothing.

 

What he actually meant was the beam that support them could not carry on down to nothing.

 

So Inside you end up with this where the roof beams square off the ends:

the ends pf the gable are cut off inside as the beam comes down to the bottom.

 

Externally you clad any shape you want in our case with the sarking board to get the valleys to run all the way to the bottom with no "end"

It's a warm roof hung from a ridge beam, with separate ridge beams for the gables / dormers

 

I don't know if any of these show enough details.
