QuoteTo top it all off, I'm not sure if I can have my roof pitch change the way I want to because I think I seenow that I should have used taller 2x6's where the 6:12 pitch would be so that the higher walls would bestrong. To change my pitch to a shallower one so that I can have more loft head room was the main planbut now I see that if I was to build a wall, let's say another 4 feet high, ontop of the already 10 foot wall,it would be very week with nothing supporting it. I guess the gable end wall would support it at one end butthe other end wouldn't have nothing there for support. Does any one know if I can make a wall strong enoughup there?
