Hi, Glenn. Is someone paying you to tell me what I want to hear? Seriously, though, 16' width is what I'd like to do. Framed like Kevin's, but as I said twice the length, with the 6' bump-out in the back for bath and utility rooms. I know I'm getting into mobile home dimensions here, but I still think it'd look great. As an addendum to my first post, I thought I'd mention that although ease and economy of construction are high on my list of priorities in the build, they aren't particularly moving factors in why I'd like a shed roof. Mostly it's just my preference as far as appearance. Now, that said, if it were to cost substantially more or be especially difficult to do this alone or with limited help, that certainly would be a deal killer. Thanks tons.
I don't know if there would be any real problem involved with this, but I'd like to just keep that roof line going down past the back wall over the 6'x20' bump-out. That would put the back-back wall height at 6', but since bathroom vanity and toilet would be on that wall... I haven't thought it through, obviously. Ideally it would still provide enough headroom.
....which would give me a lot of space to cool and heat, but I hope to at least recover some of that cost with the orientation of the house along with enough glass on the front wall to take advantage of passive solar.
