Version 2.6.2 - 11.17.2019
- Allowed the option for interior half hips within complex roofs.

The logic for interior half hips proved to be rather complicated.  This additional feature affected every aspect of the module so it took me about 7 days to make it happen.  However, in the process I think I also made the module more robust and addressed some other minor issues.  Eventually I will also need to enable interior dutch gables but right now I'm too exhausted mentally to attempt it.  Currently only gables and half hips are able to pile up on each other as shown.

Also note that you can mix things up with interior gables and half hips.  For instance you could have a half hip on gable on half hip or any other combination.

Now, let's see if I can make anymore head way on valleys, hips and rafters...

Hi Mary,
John has a pretty extensive thread on a log dogtrot he built;

Pics need to be hosted on another photo hosting site and linked to in your post.

I think there are several people here who would be happy to help with suggestions on planning your project. You might want to sketch something and scale it, or better yet stake it out on the ground and measure it. 2 24' rooms with a dogtrot is going to be in the neighborhood of 60' longx24' wide, nothing wrong with that but that is quite an undertaking.

Take a look, in this vid I talk about how to get this built for $265 a month with a construction loan.

Well, mud and logs. And a bit of straw bale. Most of the materials came off the land where it is built.

A house the sequesters tons of carbon. Zero paint, glue or cement. The heat from the summer heats the house through the winter.

I paid my concrete contractor $8K for the foundation walls and another $1K to pour the basement floor. My total site excavation work was $35K. This included installing the septic system, digging a shallow well and installing well casing, putting 6 inches of rock on my driveway, digging and back filling the foundation, grading and building the 2 rock walls.

Sorry I didn't see your message earlier. PM me if you have other questions.
