Framing Angle Question


I'm building a 6 foot square club house for my kids. I'm using 2x2s for studs for the walls.

I want the front wall to be taller than the back wall so the rain will run off. My front wall is 6ft, 8in and the backwall is 6ft, 6in.

I'm getting ready to cut the side wall vertical 2x2's and don't know what angle to cut them at the top so the horizontal, top 2x2 angles appropriately from the front, vertical 2x2 (6ft, 8in) to the back, vertical 2x2 (6ft, 6in).

Look forward to your help.

Framing Angle Question


If I am understanding your question correctly...
You are building a 6'x6' square box. You want the roof to slope down from front to back from 6'8" to 6'6".
You want to know the angle in which to cut the top of your studs on the two side walls to achieve this slope, right?

Your angle is going to be 1.59 degrees.

Wookie:

Thanks for your response. You are correct on your assumptions. Basically a drop of 2 inches across 6 feet.

Thanks,

Tim

That's not much of a drop. I would go with at least a 1:12 slope, which would give you a 6" drop and an angle of 4.76 degrees.
