where it snows, think about the water your house will make from that snow. Unless your home is superinsulated, the heat escaping from it will melt some of
of the snow before the sun does. When that melted snow reaches overhangs that are colder, it can freeze and create ice damming. This can pull gutters off

(with a northern roof pitch) or if the roof is facing south so that it melts the snow off? We are trying to design a cabin with a view that is primarily
style of structure but aren't sure a north facing roof is good for heavy snow area (10' plus possible - near ski resort in Utah.)
Thus, the west afternoon sun does melt some of the snow on the roof. If you are building in an area that has 10-ft. of snow, I would be a bit nervous about
a single skillion, designed to fall snow in one direction. This is not an Australian example, though the epic snow fall may have given that away! The walls
inside and outside creating an environment where the snow is more likely to stay on the roof. The snow also acts as an additional insulating blanket, keeping

How does the roof cope with the snow load? In my mind, flat roofs and a lot of snow are not a good combination.
on this particular house were engineered above and beyond the calculated snow load for the area. With flat roofs water shed is also a main concern, and
don't spoil the view in mountain/snow country. and snow is a good insulator so the insulation R-value goes up the more snow there is.
And whenever it snows, the flat roof supports an additional insulating blanket. The R-value, or resistance to heat flow, for snow is about R-1 per inch
nearly flat roof, but I prefer overhangs. R-1 per inch for snow? nice.
