When we designed the I series plans obviously the most important feature of the roof is the curved eyebrow dormers front and back. With these dormers, the ceilings inside also curve.
It was important to us that this feature be clearly explained in the drawings, and that it be designed so that it could all be prefabbed with the rest of the roof package and shipped to the site. These trusses all run front to back and the beams over the windows are curved. With our working drawing package, all these trusses are dimensioned for roof slope, heel depth and slope changes. We have had many differnt truss suppliers work from the drawings and while more work than a conventional dormer they certainly do make the house look amazing inside and out.
The client that opted for the gabled dormers was working towards a different looking home, but still with a floor plan quite consistant with the I series inside.
