My first post even though I have the first issue of FHB. Enjoy every issue cover to cover.
We are in the process of designing our first new house after remodeling 14 old ones. We want a cottage style with a sloped/curved/sweeping roof line. I have searched the knowledgebase for hours and cannot find an article on how this roof line should be constructed. I believe I saw it in an old copy years ago. I searched on all three descriptions (sloped/curved/sweeping roof line) and came up empty, so my first question is what is this type roof line called?
The second is where can I find an article or Taunton book that describes how it should be designed and constructed?
Google found a cedar roof manual that calls this style:
Swept or Bell Eave, what do you think?
Thanks in Advance,
