Framing of Hip Roof with Cupola

The framing for this roof is a symmetrical hip roof with large overhangs and a cupola. In order to allow for the cupola, the framing of the roof does not extend to the peak. This makes the framing a bit more complicated, but it accomplishes the owner’s goal of an unrestricted view of the cupola from the interior of the building.

The owner intends to use this building for a studio, so it is situated near her home. She plans to put windows in the cupola for increased natural lighting.
