Is this just a weekend getaway place? How much time will be spent there by how many people?
Some little things that jumped out at me:I don't see any closets. Storage is important in small houses.
Do an extra wide counter on your kitchen peninsula so you can have seating on the other side.
You're furniture is arranged the wrong way (at least for my preferences). You've got what I assume is a beautiful view out those big beautiful windows and all the furniture is facing the inside of the house. Not a big deal but I'd make sure the room layout allowed positioning the couches for an outside view.
Some dimensions would be helpful as well. How big is the house?Alan
Anyone that says they're fully up on anything past the '90's codes is probably being overly optimistic
dropped gable wall and upright lookouts.
If you notch the extended ridgebeam so that it is no deeper than the thickness of the framing then it is there to support the overhang but is enclosed within the soffit and not exposed to the elements, up there is dry as well, as you go down the wall the wind drives water in more.
Usually my lookouts are 2x6, I use 2x6 subfascias and 1x8 fascias most of the time. I install them up to the top of the rafter/underside of the roof sheathing and make 1x5" notches for airflow if its vented.
