there's snow around it and its out doors
Simple roof to capture snow melt ? Passive solar design
Although pitched roofs were usually the go to for a climate that requires homes to bear the weight of snow on their roofs, due to modern technology this is no longer necessary.
lovely would it be to come home to this modern style beauty after a long snowshoe excursion? I know that in many parts of the country we just got rid of snow and I shouldn't even mention it, but I can't dismiss the thought of hot chocolate by the fire after looking at this dreamy house.

So you have me convinced on the added insulation w the R factor and snow...what happens in summer heat? Seams like the efficiency for keeping cool would be a limiting factor...I live in a high mtn desert and snow comes abundantly in the nov-march months as do 100+ deg June-August! Are my cooling
wind, seismic, building weight, furniture, occupants etc. Snow is actually one of the easiest to design for, and all structures are required to be constructed to support local snow load conditions regardless of roof pitch.
Myth: Flat Roofs Can’t Possibly Support All the Extra Weight A totally valid concern, but rest assured, your architect and engineer have this in mind when designing the roof structure. Certainly, the weight of snow can add up, but your home must support

As far as the snow goes, the "snow guards" (bat shaped things) function to keep the snow contained, until they have a chance to melt off, or at worst break off into smaller sections before falling off... Another way we handle snow falling off roofs in Colorado at least (lots of snow...!), is something
something we call the "stoop gable". An intentionally placed gable (usually on a porch roof), that is located above the stairs to prevent snow and ice from building up on the stairs and becoming a hazard. Here's an example of a "stoop gable" on a recently completed project in Colorado.. (below).
Snow guards may be essential over walk ways
