Creative ways to make vaulted ceiling rafters deeper
Going back and forth on roof construction.
The cheapest vaulted roof structure is 2×12 lumber. But it’s only 11.5 inches deep.
What about furring down the rafter to the interior to get a little more insulation depth? Is this a common method?
Also wondering if its a good idea to put a layer of foam on the underside of rafters in a vented assembly prior to sheetrock? If this is a bad idea, Why?
