Unequal pitches

Rodger, you have to adjust the birds mouth (or seat
cut if it's a close cornice) to raise
or lower the rafter top (depending on whether the
pitch is greater or lesser) until it is even with
the tops of the rafters of the other section. You
will also have to adjust the plancer cut for equal
facia width (this will show unless you have a closed
cornice). Lastly, the hip rafter needs unequal bevels
on top to match the unequal pitches. When you finally
get this right, you might want to sign you name to
it, it will look more like a work of modern art than
a building member. Good luck.
