CHOOSING AN OVAL CEILING DOME STYLE
Choosing a style for your oval dome is mostly personal taste along with the overall design/theme of the home. The style of an oval dome is the unique shape of the dome rafters: soft, half-circle or elliptical. Most of our builders prefer the soft style as it provides the most flexibility in height. When you choose the soft style, we provide you with our suggested height, but you ultimately have the freedom to choose the height you want or are potentially limited to by the pitch of your roof or truss design. In contrast, when you choose either the half-circle or elliptical style, the height is mathematically predetermined given the size of the box and the style you’ve chosen.
