C'est fini!

Of course, this is just the elevation drawing. I have pages and pages of drawings for the framing plans.

Now I have to package it all up into a document and mail it to the planning office.

Tomorrow. I must now sleep.

That's just the elevation drawing-- how it should look when it's finally completed.

Trust me I have pages and pages of dimensioned framing plans.

Here's where I get all nutty on the design...

Will you make the porch roof into a deck, installing a railing and replacing the 2nd story window with a door?

Oooh-ooh, FRENCH DOORS.

It would be totally killer to have the house number be a stained-glass panel, don'tcha think?

How will the snow come off the flat roof of the porch? Will ice damming be a problem?

You noticed the flat roof that could become a deck, eh? Like I may have planned it that way or something. :)

Yes, it's framed with 2x8s, and decked with 3/4" plywood. I didn't design a deck railing and such at this point becaise that can be a separate project, and I want to get this one done (particularly dealing with permits and inspections).

And yes, french doors are in the plan as well. :)

The stained glass panel above the door is also planned-- freaky that you should bring it up since I hadn't actually mentioned it anyone. The numbers painted on the front with gold leaf so they are visible in the day, and the panel will be backlit at night.

The roof isn't entirely flat-- it has a slight slope (4 inches in 10 feet). The snow will collect on it, and when it melts, it should melt off toward the front. I will have ventilation under the decking and insulation in between the joists, so ice damming shouldn't be a problem.

Also, the roof is covered with an EPDM rubber membrane. No leaky.
