TINY HOUSE ROOFING
When designing your house (of any size) you must determine what you want your tiny house roof to look like and how you intend for it to function. Are you going to be adding solar panels, do you want a green roof or rainwater catchment system? You must consider how your roofline is going to affect the interior space, how will it shed snow and/or rain? Do you want it to look modern, funky, rustic, traditional, ETC? Do you want a sunlight or clerestory window? These are all of the questions we must ask you at B&B Micro Manufacturing before any construction actually begins on your tiny house roofing.
As I am sure you have noticed, roofs take form in a variety of ways. From the traditional triangles atop a rectangle that we drew as kids, to the innovative shapes of modern architecture. Roofs allow for the design of your structure to blur the lines between form and function. Adding yet another layer to which you can express your creative vision. Below we outline a number of rooflines to provide you with inspiration for your own tiny, small, or traditional structure. B&B Micro Manufacturing has a wide range of rooflines for each signature model as well as our past builds for you to choose from.
Once you have decided on the shape of your roof, you must now determine that pitch (aka. the angle). So get ready for some fun refreshments on geometry and trigonometry!
You know what you want your roof to look like, you know how to calculate the pitch … So what material is it going to be?
