In the continuing sometimes fun and sometimes frustrating passtime of building my own house, I have another question.
I’m wondering how bay windows are normally supported when they are placed
in a straight wall.Do I just angle braces from the bottom of the window back to the wall, or is there some other way of doing this.
How about the roof. How are the rafters normally supported above the window. Do I just run a top plate on top of the window and set my rafters on that?
I’ve attached a very rough drawing with my proposed braces and rafters shown as dotted lines.
Looking for any suggestions or help. Thanks in advance
