    The second photo shows as much of a plan as I had. Essentially a 20 by 20 inner square, overlaid with a 28 by 28 square which was turned 45 degrees. In effect the SIDES of the inner square became the HYPOTENUSE of a triangle added to 3 of the 4 sides. The fourth side facing the water was omitted so there wasn’t a post in the middle of the view, or a roof overhang to block the mountain tops. The back/lowest triangle was truncated to create enough space for a stone fireplace . The single pitch roof sloped at 10 degrees. 9 x 9 posts, 9 x 14 main beams, and lots of compound angle mortises to receive the various tenons. B
