how many degrees is 5/12 pitch. I reasoned 6/12 was 22.5 then 5/12 was 18.75.
I think I siphered wrong.
Today I had time to work on the rafter ends, the house bowed out 1 1/4 on the rafter ends
tried different tools as I could not get a circular saw in there or a sawzall with the top board and the soffit in the way. Used a router and cut slots on the end then later tried an auto body grinder, can take of a 1/4" in 20 seconds that was the ticket, dark now but got it to about an 1/8 " of variation over the length easily.
The roofer I spoke with said on Landmarks he snaps a line from side to side, follows the drip on the first line run then snaps a line and makes the second line straight, This large bow was mostly over a 18 foot span so felt it was a bit extreme, now will not need to fudge it.
Tomorrow figure out how to raise the sag over the garage of 1 1/4" and straighten out the front line.
Do they build homes level or try to build them level? my thinking is I am high in the center and maybe I should leeave it that way as I want the eves high in the center. Old cabinet master said use a line to get your bottom facia edge straight from side to side but thinking about it now wonder about the high in the center.
Realize it is nit picking but since I am doing it it is easy to do it either way at this stage.
