We can't seem to make up our mind on our home between a 2 story and the 1 1/2 story.
I grew up in a 1 1/2 story with no knee walls; the upper rooms vertical walls were simply set in towards the center and the two upper rooms had sloping walls/ceiling for most of their width with a small, approx 4 foot wide flat central ceiling. Windows just on the front and rear ends. It worked fine and was no doubt simpler to construct than with 4 foot high knee walls. Anyhow, back to the original question... how do you tie the roof/walls together building a 1 1/2 story with 4 foot knee walls, and are you complicating things by building a 4 foot knee wall?
