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'
Go ahead and crush my little heart.

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.

Someone has homework, and wants the Intertubes to do it for them.
:laughing: This is the WRONG place to try and get ONE answer. :whistling2:

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. :icon_cheesygrin:

I just wonder what the eave "over-hang" has to do with the height of the structure.

Andy.
Andy,

It has nothing to do with it. No one can ever give an answer unless the OP comes back and gives more information. Foundation height, wall height, rafter size.... which will determine HAP cut. Without that, you can't tell what the ridge height will be.

Using ONLY the information given in the original post, the answer is 18 feet.

EDIT: Correction. The answer is 18. OP didn't specify unit of measure.

but he never specified the wall height. what if he's doing 10 ft high walls? everyone is assuming an 8ft high wall or its an a-frame with a 7 foot tall door in the end but no width for the door is given. there isnt enough information to come up with a correct answer.
