Dormer Window Header?
I’m looking to replace these 2 windows with a 2 wide double hung or perhaps picture window.
This is a dormer on the second floor.
My question is about the header requirements.
1. What would I need for that span?
2. Is it possible to have a header where the ends are angled to get the header up higher?
I would like to avoid having the opening heigt be any smaller than it is now, and adding a larger headed would likely do that.
I’d appreciate any thoughts
You do not need much of a header in that gable end.
But what you do need is a tie between the bottom of the end rafters to keep the end of those walls from pushing away from each other.
Thanks for the response!
I was planning on making that a vaulted ceiling, so there will be ties up top.
