non-square shed


It's only 8', a single slope shed roof is fine, if he wants that style, A gable can be too if he wants that syle.

But your trying to tell the guy to cut walls, and build walls taller, and build walls shorter, and then add walls .... plain and simple is he had the walls up and a gable roof could have been accomplished MUCH easier.

Not with non -parallel walls i'm thinking.

Unless you run the ridge at an angle? Maybe your thinking of something?

The ridge is straight. The gable would just follow the angle of the wall.

The center of the gable on the front would be different then the gable on the back? Or unequal slope with a slant?

Think of it as a gable hip rafter. Same pitch.

This is how you frame that roof. Ridge down the center at 4'. Common rafters run front to back. The back side gable will act as if it were a valley.The front side would act as if it were a hip. I used a 5/12 pitch for an example. Hope this helps. The hip and valley pitch would be 4-9/16:12.

Thank you for taking the time to draw him a picture. I would have done it, but not knowing the exact measurements I didn't feel it to be worth it.. Props to ya though

Would work good, door would be under the eave and not the gable as long as that is ok with the person.

Why is that an issue?

Didn't say it was bad, actually I think it would work great.
Some people may want the door on the gable end.
May look better in the yard with the way the house roof is or the phase of the moon.
I've had customers want certain things that didn't really matter, but it mattered to them.
