Default More roof shape fun.

What would you do or say about this carport. Count a non hip feature or not?
It is the only picture I have. There is a client that wants more than just my opinion so please give all the opinions you can. Have fun.



Sorry bout the size I did not know it was so big

Does not appear to be over enclosed space and the roof is not attached to the main roof structure - Does not count in the geometry calculation.

Default Re: More roof shape fun.

your picture doesn't provide enough info. Since its a wood framed home, many carports like this one are directly tied into the framing of the home. Only looking under the carport would tell, but the shed roof has to attach somehow. Unless there is a board nailed to the siding, which holds up the carport (which I doubt) then I would consider that part of the total calculation.
