Hi Richard – Thanks for the feedback, i did not do the build myself.

The pics I posted are a bit deceiving. Those collars beams closest to the dormer are doubled up, there are beams behind the two collars closest to the dormer which attach to the roof joists.

We didn’t want any collars or rafters attaching the roof joists in the middle, but we decided on raised collars @ about 9ft. There are two collars on either side. These come into the room about 4-5feet, the middle 10-12ft section where the dormer is, is still open as you can see. The light metal roof wouldn’t need much in collar support, but we decided since we have the dormer adding weight to only add collars on either side and then be able to use that as storage.

Hopefully these next pics illustrate it better.

Also, I got the AC in this weekend and have also begun “organizing”. I converted my tools to 220v now, too… which is nice.

Did you do the build?

WOW exactly what I wish to do.. ONE COMENT! I don t see any COLLAR beams except for one on each end and I don t think they are very connected to the roof joists..

I am not being a D**K! I know collar beam would be tough with that dormer in the middle but??? ALSO I don t see any plywood or other stuff to tie the collar beams thereto the rafters!
