In Reply to:  NEED ADVICE: PITCH OF LARGE GABLE DORMER posted by Eve on April 08, 2004 at 20:05:21:

1. The wrong pitch is a breech of the contract that the carpenter has with you. He knew what was required and for some reason did not provide it. Do you want to take action on this? I had problems in a house I had built, but was advised by an attorney not to sue as the court action would be more costly than trying to settle.

2. Located on the back of the roof, chances are this gaff will not be noticable to the general public eye-- you know the problem exists, so you notice it. Can you continue to live with this?

3. Unless you are trying to maintain a strong historical or aesthticaly astute structure, chances are this will not be disruptive and a scathing blunder, architecturally.
