Corner shed Roof???


yep it's all the same thing. Hip rafters from the corners of your walls to a common point.[IMG]file:///C:/Users/craig/AppData/Local/Temp/moz-screenshot.png[/IMG]

Corner shed Roof???


So the center is just a meeting of all the corners? how do you join them? and the real dumb newbie question is how do you figure all the angles out? is there an easy trick to this?

Corner shed Roof???


easiest way. Do you have any builder friends, friends of friends?
A turret roof only works with equal sides. the more I look at your pic the more of a pain in the ass this is. The only way to do a true turret and maintain a level soffit is to change the distance the soffit is off the walls. I.E. 2' at the back and 1' at the front. The roof would also "lean" to the back. The other way is to build a hip off the back corner and a gable across the 2 10' sides. Then you could build a 2 hip roof off the gable to the front wall.
sorry a gable CONNECTING the 2 10' sides, corner to corner

The easiest way to figure out your rafter runs is to snap the roof out full scale on a flat surface, big enough to include your overhangs. The soffit can be kept level and equal overhangs by adjusting the heal cuts at the plate line.

Look at my first pic in my original post. The main porch roof is under a 4/12, while the cone is a 12/12, if memory serves me.

The soffits are level and equal overhangs.

Here's a few framing/finish pics from different projects.

Nothing is impossible, but it may be impractical.

I have drove through neighborhoods lately in the newer communities and seen a lot of these out there.. just haven't seen one that I can look at inside.... Guess I could ring some door bells and ask... then run when they call the cops..

Thats awesome man... it will be 10ft across both backs and 6 on the other 2 then whatever that leaves as the front... i think this is sufficient enough and more room but less yard taken up than using a 8 x 10ft standard shed. if I'm out to lunch let me know...

again thanks man.. thats awesome having help like this from you.

2x4 walls or 2x6?
O.K. these are the numbers based on 2x4 walls, they are fine vancouver builds 3 storey buildings with 2x4. warmer= less need for insulation
Corner shed Roof???-img_0001.jpg
all the numbers are to the center of the cut if you want to go single hips or the center of doubles. I would go 2 plys. 4/12 is flat for a hip roof in Alberta.
The hip cuts are 13.33 degrees the rafters to fill in the hips are 18.43 degrees. I have to go clean my pool now the wife is all over me. I'll check back around dinner to see if you need anything else.

Those drawings are cool, but I don't see why those three hips don't join in the middle, then run bastard hips on the 45 walls to join at the peak. The plane over top of the door will be a slightly steeper pitch than the rest, but it eliminates a bunch of extra framing.

That looks like a lot of unnecessary work and very difficult to pull off structurally.
