Is it possible to construct an exterior door header over a 6' opening without enough space for a 10" header?
One of the previous home owners installed this addition over an existing patio. Constructing a wall with a 6' sliding glass door parallel with roof joist above. With the pitch of the roof, the low end of the roof joist leaves only 4" of height above the door frame.
The framing of the door is incorrect, but I want to know if it is possible to even frame a door this size given such little roof for the header.
Is the only solution to install a narrower door, requiring a smaller header?
If you're looking at the image, we also would like to extend the wall to the left, eliminating the single door and the 3'x3' area for the door to swing. This would allow us to shift the door over to the left to free up a little more room for the header
