Sheathing the Swooping Roof
SHEATHING THE SWOOPING ROOF
Even though the swoop is really gradual on the front and back roof sections, we still want it to be very smooth. On the lower section, we have two layers of 3/8” plywood. Then, where it flattens out at the top, we switch to 3/4” plywood. It’s simple math: two layers of 3/8” equals one layer of 3/4”—so it all matches up perfectly and provides a sturdy deck for the future roof.
The home's main roof on the back side dramatically swoops down to the lower elevation. And then the roof above what will be the living room planes out at the very top—but then swoops on its own radius coming down. Because it’s tricky to get up in there, the framers installed the waterproofing in that section as they went along.
THE FAUX CEILING
Peek inside and you’ll see a faux ceiling in the living room. This is only a temporary platform so that workers can have easier access. But once the platform is removed, the space will open up to an awesome two-story living room with expansive windows above, flooding light down to the room below. Just another example of design details that take this house from ordinary to extraordinary.
