Never seen this before, wondering what everyone thinks. Is this hip, if not, why?
Rest of home is completely hip, this area in the back has a raised portion. At its largest it is still less than 18" from the rest of the surface.
Obviously the pink lines will not be included in the HIP calculation because they are inside the perimeter of the building. So the question is, should the uncolored lines (18,3) in the top & center of the diagram be considered hip? or something else? In reality I don’t believe the 18" of raised roof really affect the envelope of the building and the way wind should flow over it. As well, the 18,3 uncolored lines are at the same height off the ground on the edge, as the rest of the roof perimeter.
