I am in the design stage of a new house and are going for the look of the "flared" roof designs found on French inspired houses.
Does anyone out there have a good way/detail to accomplish this?
The roof will most likely be a 12/12 or 16/12 pitch, stick framed with 2X12's or engineered lumber, I was thinking about cutting the "flairs" out of a 2X12's and attach to the tops of the rafters at the end, And probably use plywood or OSB on the sides to hold it in place, Sheath the top with 1X4's or bend sheet goods.
I was hoping to have enclosed soffits, but it may not work. Any ideas would be apprecitated.
