Wall Plan

Annex Modern Garage Wall Plan
Annex wall component

Our garage walls are framed with 2 x 6 spruce studs for added strength.

Roof Framing Plan

The Annex garage’s contemporary flat roof (0.5/12 pitch) consists of pre-engineered trusses and 5/8” T&G plywood sheathing.

Flat roofs do not always require vents. Consult your contractor or roofing company for the most effective ventilation system for your roof.

Enhanced Siding Package (ESP)

Your Annex includes our enhanced siding package: a layer of sheathing (OSB or plywood) and building wrap (a breathable, water-resistant air barrier) between the siding and the wall framing that give the structure shear strength and act as an additional plane of protection against moisture.
