I'm not much of a framer, and discovering this balloon framing in the process of a kitchen remodel that has me scratching my head.
It's a 1937 story and a half and the wall shown is a gable end.
The drawing outlines the existing, dotted lines are openings I need for windows (lower) and a range hood vent (upper.) I apologize for the size of the file...
The way I've worked it out seems like way too much lumber so I started to question if I'm missing something.
I searched the archives and found some good info. on the process for bracing and placing the headers, but can't seem to wrap my mind around the layout.
Anyone care to give me a hand? Thanks
