Making windows fit in 2nd story with porch
We have found a builder that can build our plan within budget. A very tight budget. We originally had in mind a 10/12 pitch roof on a farmhouse style home with a 7 foot wide front porch and some dormers. He changed the main roof to 8/12 pitch which still looks okay. We've also had to lose the dormers/gables across the front. There is still the front porch to give it depth though.
BUT we can't get the 2nd story windows to fit. It seems the porch and main roof are crowding each other. He changed the pitch of the porch to 5/12 and that made the windows look better but he says they still aren't considered egress so we can't put a bedroom there.
Any suggestions? Let me know if you need other dimensions or pictures of the floorplan. I don't have a pic of the exterior.
