Previous Q & A
Previous Questions and Answers
Q:Is a gambrel roof available for this plan. We intend to use the upper floor as a guest house. App . How much more living space would be gained by going with a gambrel roof.
A:Sorry the only roof design that is pre-drawn is the one shown on the web site.
The living space size would be dictated by the Gambrel framing type, either conventional framed of roof trussed. You may lose some living space width but you would gain with more usable wall height.
The benefit with using gambrel roof trusses, is that it would eliminate the need for the support posts in the garage area.
Thank you for your interest in one of my designs.

One of the questions above had an answer that a CAD version of this plan could be purchased but it's not on the price list. How can i get pricing / order a CAD version of the plan?
A:Sorry. The answer that you are referring to, is an answer that was for my design number 76016 and was posted here by mistake.
Design 76019 is a manual drawing and not available in a cad format. You can purchase a PDF of this design if you can work with that format.

Q:Hi, Is there a way to support the upper floor, say with iron beams, so the bottom floor doesn't have the 6x6 posts? If so how many iron beams would be needed?
A:You could use engineered attic trusses which would span the entire width of the garage and eliminate the need for the support posts in the garage and the loft area. The attic trusses are designed for this type of situation.
Thank you for your interest in one of my designs.

Q:I need to increase the PSF to 50. can I use 2 by 10 rafters 16 on center
A:Based on the publication “The Span Book” from the Canadian Wood Council:
For roof joists, roof snow load of 52.2 psf:
2 x 10 no. 2 D. fir- larch would span 12’-7” at 24” o.c.
0r 2 x 10 no. 2 hem-fir would span 13’-2” at 24” o.c.
Or 2 x 10 no. 2 spf would span 12’-6” at 24” o.c.
So either one of these species would still work at 24” o.c. for this design.

Q:Building codes in our area require a snow load of 84 psf. The current design is 32. What are the structural member sizes and spacing? Can this design be modified?
A:The composite live load for design 1741 is 32 psf which is the equivalent to a ground snow load of 44 psf.
If your ground snow load is 84 psf you would need to enlist the services of a engineer registered in the state where the construction will occur to provide a snow load upgrade.
The design calls up conventional roof framing with 2 x 12 roof joists at 24 inches on center.
You can purchase a pdf or CAD file of this design from familyhomeplans to simplify this upgrade process.
Please email with any questions or if you require any additional information.

Q:Is there a wall between the garage and workshop area?
Presently the garage and workshop area are open to each other. It would be easy to add a wall from the end of the workshop across to the entry man door. This wall would just be a non-loading bearing partition wall, and not supporting any structure.
Date Posted: 03-Jul-18
Q:What are the dimensions of the garage doors?
A:The garage has a nine foot ceiling height with two nine foot wide by eight foot high garage doors.
I would be happy to modify this garage to suit your specific requirements, if required.

Q:Can you put in the electrical fixtures and plumbing fixtures for a kitchen down stairs where the work shop bench is. Also how much head room is in the loft area and what the width of the area is from 6ft to 6ft.
A:Yes to converting the garage workshop into a kitchen area. The inside dimensions for this space is 10’-4” wide by 11’-6” deep. If this garage loft is intended to sleep in, and the garage is to have vehicles, you would need to close off between the garage and the living space. Presently the loft is open to the garage.
The loft slopes from 2” at the exterior wall to 10’ at the interior peak. The middle portion measured at 6’-6” high would have a width of 10’-4”.
Please email with questions or if you require any additional information.
