English term or phrase: Eaves
"She opened up the eaves in the loft room". En fait, elle a ouvert l'espace sur un côté dans les combles, en abattant une petite cloison sous le toit mansardé, pour installer un lit pour gagner de l'espace. Il ne s'agit donc pas d'avant-toit. Est-ce que "eaves" a une autre signification ? Merci !

French translation:dans les combles -voir explication
Explanation:
The word eave can also refer to the part of a sloping roof that overhangs the wall, the part of a roof which projects out from the side wall, or the lower edge of the part of a roof that overhangs a wall.

De Wikipedia.

Je pense qu'ici le terme est utilisé au sens large pour expliquer la partie où on ne peut pas se mettre debout.

Du lien:
spacious bedroom with queen bed,
gnarled pine spiral staircase to loft bedroom with double bed and 2 singles tucked under the eaves, living room with queen hideabed, full bath, full service kitchen, and deck with gas grill.
