Resources for Japanese-style roof framing?
« on: October 21, 2020, 09:51:34 PM »
New member here. I'm planning a small timber framed garden shed, most likely with an ~ 8 x 10 footprint. I'd like to use mostly Japanese joinery. I can handle the joinery for the sill and posts and plates, but the roof is another matter. I have in mind an irimoya style roof, which is similar to a Dutch hip roof. Can anyone point me to some design resources for the joinery involved and ways to lay it out? Or at least sources for western framing a Dutch hip roof?

"Measure and Construction of the Japanese House"  seems to have a good section on rooves (pp86-96).

Currently tracking Phase 2 of a mountain homestead build.
Phase 1: Access to Mountain, Phase 2: Site Preparation, Phase 3: Timberframe Home Build, Phase 4: Landscape and Hardscape

Thanks for the tip. Found it, and that search led me to some other sources as well.
