I'll be framing a small cottage soon. It has rake walls that will be balloon-framed. One interior wall will butt into the rake wall. I'm not quite sure how to join that interior wall to the rake wall. Here's a sketchup drawing of my idea:
As you can see in the photo, the top of the interior wall laps over the rake wall. The interior wall is framed for ceiling joists for the bathroom while the rest of the house will have an open, cathedral ceiling.
Do you think this building method is sound? Is there a better way?
