Kelli, Here is the second draft based on your sketch. The roof is now a simple gable with four not so simple but doable dormers which I agree are totally cool. I think this plan may be best as post/beam but I am staying open. I have left a couple views of the old complex victorian roof up for fun. Robert
The following two views are from the first draft which are fun but a bit(lot) to complex to be justified in the energy efficient/affordable housing concept.
