No seat cut on the rafter? No header over the door? Then again, if the door is on the gable end, this building could be shorter than 13'

What if it has a loft? Then ya gotta go figure for the floor above.

Might even be an "A" Frame sitting on the ground.

If it was an A frame sitting on the ground, you could not fit a door in. He said 12'x12' which would make it only 6' height if it was a 12/12 pitch.

he doesnt say how tall the walls are so how can you figure the height of the building?? the roof if a gable or hip would add 6 feet to the height but without the wall dimensions you cant get an answer.

This is the WRONG place to try and get ONE answer.

I say that the answer is 17. The door opening is supposed to be 7 foot, but what if I want my door of my A-frame mounted 8 feet off the ground because of polar bears.
