Our measurements (i.e. 8ft. x 12ft.) are taken from the outside of the floor & wall framing, therefore, they don't include the siding, and/or sheathing.

For true interior measurements, subtract the thickness of the wall framing; 3 ½” for 2x4 walls, and 5 ½” for 2x6 walls. Note: 2 x 4 is actually 1 ½” x 3 ½” and 2 x 6 is actually 1 ½” x 5 ½” due to the properties of "finished” lumber.

Wall Plan

Surfside building wall plan

For true exterior dimensions, add the siding, sheathing (if applicable), and corner trim pieces. The Canexel siding is 3/8" thick, the cedar siding is 3/4" thick and the log siding is 1 1/2" thick. The wall sheathing varies from 7/16” to 3/4”. The corner trim is 3/4".

If you have any other questions pertaining to the size of your Surfside building, please do not hesitate to ask us, we're here to help.

Roof Framing Plan

In strong competition with gable roofing, hip roofing is up there for the most popular roofing style. Common with a pool house Surfside is a hip roof, which typically features a low/moderate slope, with all sides sloping from the center toward the walls of the structure.

Hips are more complicated to frame, sheath, and finish, but are typically simpler to trim and eliminate the vertical wall component of a gable roof style, known as “gable ends”.

Additional consideration should be given to ventilation. Due to its geometry and the lack of gable ends, roof vents must be placed on the roof itself. Consult with your contractor or roofing company, for the most effective ventilation system for your roof.

Overhang Detail

Soffits are the cedar trim pieces that are attached to the underside of the rafter ends.
Fascia is typically the cedar 1x4 that’s used to cover the rafter tips and provide a nice straight level line for the bottom of your roof.

Foundation

The Surfside style is well suited to a traditional patio stone foundation. A concrete pad is also ideal for poolside applications.

Enhanced Siding Package

If you are thinking of adding insulation to your building, consider adding one of our "enhanced siding packages". It's a layer of sheathing (OSB or plywood) and house wrap (Typar and optional HomeSlicker) that provides a moisture barrier to your structure.

Interior Cedar Siding and Framing

The Surfside style allows for a wide array of interior finishes. Our cedar siding or framing interior upgrade can be incorporated on the walls and/or ceiling, providing a warm rustic feel.

Roof Extension

One way to expand the functionality of the Surfside style is to extend the roof past one or more of the exterior walls.

The roof is then supported on a post & beam structure custom to your design. Perfect for a shaded outdoor living area.

Extra Overhang

The Surfside style roof features a standard 6” overhang where the roof meets the walls. The overhang is trimmed out with a soffit and fascia board. Extra overhang is offered in increments of 6” (i.e +6 (12”), +12 (18”)).!
