I am making a garden house. It is 11 x 14 with a gable roof and a 8/12 pitch.
I have put up all the walls, and rafters (2x8) and for some reason the roof is out 3/4" out (too long on one side, too short on the other) when I line-up the gable end and the last rafter.
1) When I look at it from the ground it does not look that 'out' and I know that the siding will cover-up this mistake. Is there a strength issue if the roof/rafter is out by 3/4"? (side note: the ceiling on the inside is open on one half of the building, but I am putting ceiling joists (2x6) to support a 'loft'(5 ft. wide) to place some garden furniture and stuff up and out of the way. Nothing too heavy, but the 2x6 will 16" o.c. with 3/4 ply going on top of the celing joists.
2)If I need to have the rafter line up perfectly with the gable end wall becasue of the bearing load, any suggestions on how to move it with only one person?
