gambrel roofed barns
« on: May 21, 2005, 01:48:22 PM »
I did a search, didn't find anything, but wouldn't be surprised if this has been linked here before:

http://barnplans.com

Basically, engineered plans for do-it-yourself gambrel rafters. The house on the front of the site is a bit of a mess, with way too many gambrel roof lines, but I'm consdering this system for my shop building. I'm not sure building your own rafters saves much money, there's a lot of material in each one. Haven't done the math yet.
A fool and his money are soon elected.

gambrel dormers in gambrel roofs where none of the lines match up?  Amazing they don't look worse than they do.

But their bi-fold doors might solve a problem for me.

I know I've seen the site at least once.  No idea if it was from the forum.
