I have question about cross-section drawings which some of you helpful peoople can hopefully answer.
I'm doing a project to build an extension to the rear of my house and a porch to the front. Both extensions are quite straight forward and as a result I'm drawing the plans myself. I have completed most of the required elevations but I'm a little unsure about the cross-section drawings.
I have studied a number of designs of other building projects which friends and neighbors have built and I have applied much of the formats and terminology found within those designs to my own.
The problem I'm having is with the cross-section drawing of the rear extension. This extension has a pitched roof with a gable end and is without overhanging eves. To complicate matters, the roof is not symmetrical along the ridge tile as one side wall is vertically extended up to the ridge tile giving the roof a shape like: |\
Basically I have been unable to find some sample *cross-section* drawings that show how the gable wall, trusses and roof tiles interrelate . I have searched through several books in libraries and bookshops to no avail. Can anyone recommend a book or other web resources that has sample drawings which address these issues?
