Customer Question

Hi - I have a house renovation and need some help with new second story dormer framing. There will be a new combination dormer at the front - a shed roof flanked by two gables. The gables rest over the first floor exterior wall, but I want the shed dormer wall to shift towards the interior about 1 foot. I can send pictures / plans/ etc.

OK - thanks.
Expert:  StructuralEng replied 4 months ago.
I've looked over the drawings. It looks like you need the dormer and roof framing sketched out and sized. I can provide this as an additional service, if you want. If you can post a roof plan for me showing the existing ridge and the desired roof lines, I will sketch and size the framing
Expert:  StructuralEng replied 4 months ago.
If you would like this additional service, let me know and I'll submit the offer. If you accept it I will provide all relevant information by tonight.

No problem. Good luck with your project
