I’m considering construction a cold, vaulted roof, something similar to what you might find in a church. From the inside the ceiling would curve from the two side walls and taper to a point at the ridge. Imagine a gambrel without the angles. Not sure what to call it.
Anyway, I’m not sure how to frame it. I’ve heard some people have made ribs out of laminated plywood. If anyone knows where I can look at samples, knows what this style of roof is called, or would know how to design and construct the ribs, I would be grateful.
