Attic with a knee wall above the external walls

tmp40d0-1Attic with a roof truss based on the external one, wooden knee wall.

An alternative to a brick knee wall is to raise the roof truss on the wooden structure .
The wooden structure of the knee wall should be reinforced in the direction perpendicular to the external walls by forceps, which braces it with the columns of solid trusses.
Particular attention should be paid to finishing the facade and maintaining the continuity of the thermal insulation layer at the junction of the external wall and the knee wall, and the insulated roof slope.

• A brick curtain wall on the outside of the wooden structure allows the continuation of the external masonry wall.
• The wooden structure enables the change of the facade material to the facing made of wooden boards.
• A wide closed hood allows you to hide the entire knee wall under the roof slope.
