I have a bonus room built into the rafter space over a 2 car garage.
The gable end faces the side of the house where the garage entrance is.
There is also a gable coming off one side of this roof - this smaller
gable faces the front of the house.
The main gable roof was framed with 2x8 rafters, then the front gable
roof was framed on top of this (room has 4 ft. knee walls, 1 window at
the gable end).
The problem is that I'm losing the square footage under this second
gable since the framer didn't header out this section in the main
Any suggestions on how this would normally be framed/headered out? I do
plan to run it by a structural engineer first to see what options are
available - I'm just curious as to how you might do this.
