Mixing Roof Pitches - Hipped Roof
More questions regarding the addition that never dies...
The main portion of our house has a 4:12 roof pitch on a hipped roof. It's a 2-story house, and due to it's siting relative to the street, the roof and roofline are not highly visible.
On the addition, Hubby wants to raise the roof pitch to 6:12 to allow a vaulted ceiling in the room underneath. I love the idea of a vaulted ceiling in that room, but have concerns about changing to a different roof pitch. I'm not sure the extra 18 inches on the interior ceiling peak would be worth potentially 'mucking up' the exterior.
The area in question runs along the house's front elevation -- so left side would be 4:12, right side 6:12. And again, the roofline is not highly visible.
Is this a big architectural no-no?
Or am I being a worry wart for nothing?
