I trust everyone had a wonderful IBS... Softplan had a spectacular booth location, anchoring a long aisle. Very well chosen.
I'm always a bit leery of starting up a new thread, given the wealth of knowledge already available to us here, but I have not been able to locate anything on the topic. Here's the gist:
Layout - trapezoid shape, with one angled wall. This is the 8' hip wall.
Roof - 2/12 pitch, assume no heel height. From an 8' hip, this puts our left wall at 16'-0" tall, and rakes the sides.
3D - Because of the angled hip wall, my left gable end necessarily slants. My first instinct is to change my dominant reference wall to the 16'-0" wall... but because I only have one plane, I've no option for dominance.
Rake Hip - If I rake the hip wall to accommodate the span difference, the roof reference will default to the lowest point; 8'-0"
So - how do I get that damned roof hip to slope and provide a level high end (at 16'-0")?
Thanks for the thoughts!
