proremodel, that would be awesome!
I did some exploring in the attic today
The house is a timberframe hybrid..mostly timberframe but there is traditional stickframe also..
The east side of the roof rafters are doug fir beams (timberframe)
The west side of roof is built from stick frame Yes there is a wall in the middle that extends to the peak..
ok so the bathroom ceiling has the joists running from that wall to the west rafters..the construction crew also placed reinforcing 2x4s that are nailed at a 90 degree angle (forms a T). They placed these halfway between the wall and the edge of roof..my guess is for reinforcement!
I only need a 60 x 42 inch hole..so i just need to remove 2 joists..
ok thats more information!
Give me some drawings! Im a visual learner!
