Transitioning an Air Barrier From Wall to Roof
Just a quick question…I was browsing the Detail Library and couldn’t find what I was looking for…which is more a comment on me than on the incredible sections that are saved there.
I’m doing a Pretty Good House in the desert, I’ve posted here before. But along with providing the structural guy with all are materials…I want to give him a general idea of how we want the joists to terminate at the wall so we can run the sheathing up to the roof line. Then I’d like to build out the overhang with a short beams that run along the roof.
I intend to cover the walls and room with external insulation after everything sealing the air/water barrier.
is there a detail for on the site…and if not, can someone point me toward a detail elsewhere.
