One of the many things that we’ve gotten really good at over the years is collaboration within our office to achieve lofty goals in the area of design. When we were tasked with figuring out how to build a 16′ wide dormer into a 36′ wide attic truss area, we rolled up our sleeves and got to work. After we figured out ‘how’ we were going to build it, we needed to display it on paper so that local building code officials could understand and approve it. So the next step was to convey the construction specifications to our drawing department. The resulting schematics quickly, clearly and accurately reflected our intentions! The building design was approved and we added another unique building to our ever expanding category of work.
This 36′ x 56′ building has an additional 900 sq/ft of attic space upstairs. The 8/12 pitch permits an 8′ high ceiling in that space and of course the 16′ wide walk out dormer really opens the space up! The partial lean to measures 6′ out from the building and extends to just past the dormer and entry door, stopping short of the full length of the building and terminating at 38′. Functionality and design combine to create a true masterpiece in the northeast !
