Yeah roofs tend to keep thing drier. Shed roof would be the same height, but do you really need a 4/12 pitch? Using glued edge sheet asphalt 6" overlap you get by on 1/12 pitch.

Last year I built a 10 x 12 garden shed, largest here without permit, about the size of my master bedroom.

Use outswing doors. They don't affect interior space.

Tiny Office Home Office! :)

I have been trying to find the right way to wire this. How about this?
Remove the yellow covers, mount this in the wall, and run an outdoor extension cord to the house.

This is a surge protector!

I realized that when I figured out how to mount this to a wall. It has those slots the back.

Apparently I can just wire an outlet to an outdoor extension cord, but this is UL listed and $13: Defiant 4-Outlet Box with Circuit Breaker - 15 Amps [the picture is from one that looks the same, but is cUL-rated. I am sure that the Canadian Underwriter's Laboratory is good enough for a laptop and LED lights, but this is cheaper!

Honestly, I want a roof at a 34.3515 angle--our latitude, but that would have been an issue with a shed of any logical width. I could install one whole solar panel!

I don't need to tell the power company about one solar panel, do I?

One thing that I have not figured in is HVAC. I should only need a tiny one for something the size of a normal closet. I guess that I could just plug it into my wall-mounted surge protector, although that definitely wouldn't be the most elegant solution.

Would it be worth designing a roof for one solar panel?

A 1:12 roof would be vastly simpler. I could plan 8'2" on the door side and 7'10" on the other and save myself a great deal of work.

Or I could do 8' and 7'8" and save myself more work!

I had wanted the roof pitch to more or less match the roof and shed. Hopefully the old women would be more likely to approve of it. I had thought that an outswing door would be less secure, but apparently it is more so: https://www.finehomebuilding.com/201...outswing-doors

What happens when you try to kick down a door on a building only four or five feet wide?

30"x80" was the most common size that they had in-stock. I figured that would help get a good value. The cheapest door is $119 and looks like Mom's front door: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Masonite...1468/205421550

This is a similar door, except it swings outward, and is prehung. $289: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Steves-S...4ORH/205070559

So, an extra $170, but how much of that is from being prehung?

For the record, an 8:12 roof is 33.69 and a 1:12 pitch is 4.76: https://www.barntoolbox.com/roof-pitch-angles.htm

How much roof overhang do I want? I have been using 6" so far.

I tried to find this picture and I realized that I must not have attached it correctly earlier:


freebeard, you don't want me using polymetal?

Zero. Your giving up a foot of interior space.

See the roof in the picture at #102? The arch is made up of three pieces. Use just the lower two, and you have a Gothic arch. Zero overhang (less maybe a gutter (1-1 1/2")) and good headroom with a six foot wall.

Polymetal is so last decade. Now it's stainless steel.

I never knew that you cared!

I do not want to build wider than the fenders. Is that mutually exclusive with a 6" overhang?

How important are gutters on a roof this narrow?

This one has a roof overhang and interior space!

However, the base confuses me. He built straight up, straight out, and then angled out.

I should probably have storage above the desk, but nothing heavy.

If I put my desktop in there I could replace the computer desk with something like this: For $139 Mom could theoretically use that instead of the floor in front of the cabinets, the kitchen table, and piling so high on the counter.

'Maybe' gutters.

I think that looks good up to this point:



You can get plywood in 4x12 sheets. One piece per side, then an arched roof. That Tyvek will be covered by something cosmetic? Use roofing membrane instead and skip the siding?

Would the ridge be N-S or E-W?

That guy built storage into his floor, but I am going to have insulation there. This guy built a teardrop trailer and made a bit of a footwell, but I cannot see it in the other pictures:
This was for a different teardrop trailer:
They used 1x2s and also had in-floor storage. They did not mention the plastic: Turned-about: 2012
These people built a 7 ft x 13.5 ft hoverboard trailer on a Harbor Freight trailer.

That seems a bit big! https://lonestarhovercraft.com/rip-t...craft-trailer/

Another teardrop trailer!

They made it out of foam and said it is 10' long, but I do not see how wide it is, five or six feet? Teardrops n Tiny Travel Trailers • View topic - 10' Standie Foamie ... on hold

A 12' piece of plywood would have made more sense. This is the siding they used:
The siding is to match the house and shed. The door will be on the south side. Which way should I slope the roof?

He says it’s 8.5’ tall from the ground x 6’ wide x 10’ long, plus a 2’ porch.

It’s cute...
